Peter Carey with Kim McKimmie

Although Mr. Carey was born in Australia and spent his early years working in advertising in both Melbourne and Sydney, he has lived in New York since 1990.

His works include 14 novels, many short stories, with 3 short story collections, a book of juvenile fiction, 4 non-fiction books, 2 screenplays and a stage play.

Carey has won the Miles Franklin Award three times and is frequently named as Australia's next contender for the Nobel Prize in Literature. Carey has won the Booker Prize twice— in 1988 for Oscar and Lucinda, and in 2001 with True History of the Kelly Gang.

A Long Way from Home (Peter Carey’s 14th novel) was just recently published to revues that have critics tossing around words like “compelling” and “masterpiece.” It is set in 1950s Australia and addresses the country’s history of racism within the journey of a car race.

Kim McKimmie was ecstatic to have the opportunity to attend a literary event where Peter Carey talked about living in Australia and the USA and about his writing. Although he hasn’t lived in Australia for decades, he is truly considered to be Australia greatest living novelist and Miss Kim got to rub elbows with him!
