"Dan wanted to say that he’d learned to read in gaol. He wanted to tell her that the library had been his favorite place inside, that when he’d read As I Lay Dying he’d found a voice that made sense of time and space, that it had spoken to him more profoundly than any voice he’d ever encountered before: of how the past could not be separated from memory, of how it was not only time that change people, it was memory as well."

A rising star in his native Australia, Tsiolkas first found fame with The Slap, which I plan to read in the near future based on his deft handling of youth, class, sex, and other slippery subjects in Barracuda, which very much exudes the 19th century.
