Hot off the Press: The Chemistry of Tears by Peter Carey
Peter Carey’s latest book is out in April. Peter Kemp in the Sunday Times was one of the first critics to have his say:
Damage done by mankind’s mechanical creativeness is highlighted in a novel by one of the present day’s most unconventionally creative writers. Oddball characters are propelled along zigzagging narrative channels, connections made with whimsical aplomb. As always, too, everything is burnished with vitalisingly poetic images. The Chemistry of Tears isn’t only about life and inventiveness: it overflows with them.
