Description - A Fraction Of The Whole, by Steve Toltz

Meet the Deans 'The fact is, the whole of Australia despises my father more than any other man, just as they adore my uncle more than any other man. I might as well set the story straight about both of them.' Heroes or Criminals? Crackpots or Visionaries? Relatives or Enemies? It's a simple family story... Visit the website here 'Riotously funny. . . deserves a place next to A Confederancy of Dunces.' - Wall Street Journal 'A rich father-and-son story packed with incident, humour and characters reminiscent in styles of Charles Dickens and John Irving. . . A Fraction of the Whole soars like a rocket.' - LA Times 'A grand achievement and the debut of a great comic talent. But it also has a heart. . . go away and read it.' - Sunday Times 'Toltz brings all the energy and assurance of a young Peter Carey to this burlesque, bravura performance.' - Irish Times 'A gloriously absorbing, preposterous and funny excursion to the brink of madness and the meaning of life.' - Sunday Telegraph SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2008 MAN BOOKER PRIZE
