This chapter describes Peter Carey's writing and fiction. It first provides some background information about Carey, his education, and his early attempts at writing. Next, it reveals a new kind of fiction that was evolving during the early 1970s, one that dealt with a liberalised subject matter. It then explains the features Carey shares with other modern writers and what gives his fiction a distinctive flavour of political questioning.

Keywords:   Peter Carey, writing, fictions, liberalised subject matter, modern writers, political questioning
