9780571166329: The Tax Inspector

The day Benny Catchprice was fired from the spare-parts department of Catchprice Motors by his aunt Cathy, was also the day that tax inspector Maria Takis arrived to begin her overdue audit of the family business. From the author of "Oscar and Lucinda" which won the 1988 Booker Prize.

From the Inside Flap:

From Granny Catchprice, who runs her family business--and her family--with senility, cunning, and a handbag full of explosives to sixteen-year-old Benny, who dreams of transforming a failing automobile franchise into an empire--and himself into an angel--the Catchprices may be the most spectacularly contentious family since Dostoevsky's Karamozovs.  But when a beautiful and very pregnant agent of the Australian Taxation Office enters their lives, the resulting collision becomes, in Carey's hands, masterpiece of coal-black humour and compassionate horror.

--


From the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover:

" The Tax Inspector is a major work in style and vision...[Carey is] in the prime of his creative life..." -- The Montreal Gazette

"The sheer exuberance and heightened visual power of Mr. Carey's prose is, sentence by sentence, as brilliant and pleasurable as ever, no matter how dark his vision." -- The Globe and Mail

" The Tax Inspector is a lurid, funny, gritty novel." -- Jay McInerney
