Their Brilliant Careers : The Fantastic Lives of Sixteen Extraordinary Australian Writers Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Absurd, original and highly addictive, Their Brilliant Careers is a hilarious novel in the guise of sixteen biographies of (invented) Australian writers. Subjects include Rachel Deverall, who unearthed the secret source of the great literature of our time and paid a terrible price for her discovery; Rand Washington, hugely popular sci-fi author, body-builder and inveterate racist; and Addison Tiller, whose stories set in the outback were bestsellers even though he had never actually travelled outside Sydney. And let's not forget experimental writer Arthur ruhtrA, who wrote a whole novel without once using the letter C. Every page - from the dedication to the index - is fraudulent, each biography interweaving with the rest to form a magnificent lie.

The result is a sparklingly inventive award-winning novel.
