Peter Carey profile
Australian-turned-New Yorker Peter Carey is profiled in the NY Times.
Unlike Robert Hughes and Clive James, other celebrated expats, Mr. Carey did not leave Australia in a Joycean act of self-invention. He moved here — temporarily, he thought — because the woman he was married to then wanted to live in New York, and he thought, why not? He had already won his first Booker Prize — for “Oscar and Lucinda” (1988) — and was not feeling unrecognized or under-appreciated at home.
