Description
The Booker Prize-winning novel--now a major motion picture from Fox Searchlightnbsp;nbsp;Pictures. This sweeping, irrepressibly inventive novel, is a romance, but a romance of the sort that could only take place innbsp;nbsp;nineteenth-century Australia. For only on that sprawling continent--a haven for misfits of both the animal and human kingdoms--could a nervous Anglican minister who gambles on the instructions of the Divine become allied with a teenaged heiress who buys a glassworks to help liberate her sex. And only the prodigious imagination of Peter Carey could implicate Oscar and Lucinda in a narrative of love and commerce, religion and colonialism, that culminates in a half-mad expedition to transport a glass church across the Outback.
