Description - The Tax Inspector by Peter Carey
A wickedly funny satire on modern life and families.
The Catchprices may be the most spectacularly contentious family since Dostoevsky's Karamazovs. Granny Catchprice runs her family business, and her family, with senility, cunning, and a handbag full of explosives. Sixteen-year-old Benny dreams of transforming a failing automobile franchise into an empire, and himself into an angel. But when a beautiful and very pregnant agent of the Australian Taxation Office enters their lives, the resulting collision becomes, in Carey's hands, a masterpiece of coal-black humour and compassionate horror.
