Sam Kellow's family is stuck in the middle of a blizzard in a hotel room that costs $453 a night, but they are down to their last $40. Sam's father believes in the Big Bazoohley--the "Big Prize, the Jackpot"--that will come along just in time to save the family from ruin. But waiting around isn't good enough for Sam as comedy, adventure and fantasy unite in this highly acclaimed novel.
"Peter Carey uses the broadest of literary strokes, much in the absurd and outrageous manner of Roald Dahl. This is an openhearted, imaginative, funny book with a sunny lift to it."
Jan Slepian, New York Times Book Review, 11/12/1995
