Dads ‘N’ Lads

True History of the Kelly Gang by Peter Carey
Published by Faber, 2002

This book purports to be Ned Kelly's true confession, in his own words and written on the run for an infant daughter he has never seen. Carey gives us Kelly as orphan, as Oedipus, as horse thief, farmer, bushranger, reformer, bank-robber, police-killer and, finally, as his country’s beloved Robin Hood.

‘The novel is a tour de force akin to an American Western’ Library Journal.
