In Amnesia Peter Carey, 'the greatest Australian writer' (Richard Flanagan), asks the most vital question of the past seventy years- Has America taken us over?

He has also worked as a lecturer and expedition leader on many Antarctic cruise ships. Peter has conducted research on penguin behaviour, sea-bird ecology, fish physiology and the social behaviour of seals. He visits Antarctica every summer and is working to ecologically restore a group of small islands in the Falklands Archipelago.

'Peter Carey is the greatest Australian writer.' Richard Flanagan. 'Never have I read a novel in which I could see the genius of the writer's mind so phenomenally at work. Melbourne and the Australian language have never been so celebrated. I laughed and laughed, too.' Carmen Callil. 'I couldn't believe I was so caught by the throat by a story about malware and cyberspace and sabotage . . . but it's also about a dark stain of political history, about a mother and daughter, about power and brutality, about being young and furious. I thought Felix Moore in all his humanness, messiness and determination, was a masterpiece of character-making.' Hermione Lee
