Welcome to the Kelly book that exceeds Peter Carey's novel. It realises a completely felt, viscerally characterised ''Ned-world'' in a way Carey didn't manage. More than fiction, though, it succeeds as compelling historical narrative, with one minor and one serious caveat. The bantering, zesty prose takes you in and keeps you there. But it is FitzSimons' skill at creating a sense of a fully lived inner world that achieves a consistently transformative effect on the reader's mental world - the mark of a very good book indeed.
