It is hard to think of a better storyteller than Peter Carey. His plots leap and bound with a narrative thrust propelled by the strength of his dynamic characters and also by his literary verve. Theft is a love story — eventually — but unlike most you'd ever come across. Carey lets loose all his intelligence and playfulness and the result is an awesome spectacle, a pleasure to behold.
