How on earth does Marcus Clarke, a brilliant young Englishman—author of For the Term of His Natural Life, an Australian literary classic—stranded on the far side of the world and dead for more than a century, get himself mixed up in a murder in exclusive, modern day Toorak? A challenging, amusing, and intriguing novel about reading, writing, and thinking.

His novels have been published in Australia, the UK, and the US, and he won the NSW Premier's Award for Fiction in 2000 with his first novel, The Salt of Broken Tears.

Review:

"An air of literary pastiche, of allusion and homage, pervades Below the Styx. It adds texture and provides much pleasure in a novel that, at first old-fashioned, develops into something new and delicately original." —Sydney Morning Herald

"This is an intriguing, thought-provoking and complex novel. It is also extremely amusing and well-written..." —Bookseller + Publisher

"Michael Meehan leads his reader through the intricacies of his protagonist's quest with an easy grace. Deft character-drawing and a story which puts some probing questions about the relation of historical reconstructions to fuictional truth-telling raise this novel well above the ruck." —Adelaide Review on Deception
