My Life as a Fake (Audiobook)

Tuesday, September 9, 2008
Peter Carey

This award-winning Australian writer spins a tale that feels like it moves you through a surreal labyrinth. He is gifted at making his exotic settings and eccentric characters captivating. The plot around the central theme of a literary hoax jumps back and forth through four time frames 1938, WWII, 1972 and 1983 and in four locations, England, Australia, Malaysia, and Indonesia. It’s a bit quirky and disjointed, but a beguiling story.
