About this title:

Synopsis: Peter Carey is one of Australias finest creative writers, much admired by both literary critics and a worldwide reading public. While academia has been quick to see his fictions as exemplars of postcolonial and postmodern writing strategies, his general readership has been captivated by his deadpan sense of humour, his quirky characters, the outlandish settings and the grotesqueries of his intricate plots. After three decades of prolific writing and multiple award-winning, Carey stands out in the world of Australian letters as designated heir to Patrick White. Fabulating Beauty pays tribute to Careys literary achievement. It brings together the voices of many of the most renowned Carey critics in twenty essays (sixteen commissioned especially for this volume), an interview with the author, as well as the most extensive bibliography of Carey criticism to date. The studies represent a wide range of current perspectives on the writers fictions. Contributors focus on issues as diverse as the writers biography; his use of architectural metaphors; his interrogation of narrative structures such as myths and cultural master-plots; intertextual strategies; concepts of sacredness and references to the Christian tradition; and his strategies of rewriting history. Amidst predictions of the imminent death of postist theory, the essays all attest to the ongoing relevance of the critical parameters framed by postmodernism and postcolonialism.

About the Author: Andreas GAILE teaches English at Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz. He has published widely on Peter Careys fictions and is currently completing his doctoral thesis on the authors strategy of reappraising Australian history. His areas of interest include the postcolonial literatures in English and the relationship between the theory of history and the practice of fiction.
