'I lost my own father at 12 years of age and know what it is to be raised on lies and silence...' To the authorities in pursuit of him, outlaw Ned Kelly is a horse thief, bank robber and police-killer.

But to his fellow ordinary Australians, Kelly is their own Robin Hood.

In a dazzling act of ventriloquism, Peter Carey brings the famous bushranger wildly and passionately to life.

Review by

This book is a very impressive attempt to get inside the head of Australia's most famous outlaw Ned Kelly. Full of humour, period detail and with a lively and fast moving narrative, the book is also very strong on social history, concentrating on the injustices suffered by the Irish poor in 19th century Victoria.
