Autor Peter Carey Interviewed in the Guardian.

Peter Carey is the author of numerous books including Oscar and Lucinda, True History of the Kelly Gang,Theft and Parrot and Olivier in America, which is being released this April.  Check out this amusing Q and A between Carey and The Guardian. ("Guardian: What is the most important lesson life has taught you?  Carey: That life is an appalling teacher."  (That quotation from the interview reminds me of a recent cartoon in The New Yorker in which a young woman is shown consulting a Gypsy fortune teller.  The Gypsy looks into her crystal ball and says, 'I see you making the same mistake.  Not just one time, but over and over again.'))
