A Family Madness

'“A Family Madness is a dense rich novel . . . Out of passionately rendered history and disastrous obsessions in the present, Keneally gives us a fine, exciting and highly original novel. He remains a novelist who can work with history in the present as well as the past and make it hurt and shine.” —Marge Piercy   “A novel of great power, both more imaginative and more subtle than Schindler’s List” —The Listener magazine (BBC)   “A dark and thrilling novel that derives tension from the antipodes of human experience, existentially, historically, and even geographically, bringing together the worlds of Belorussia and Australia. In its fusion of actual events and their long resonance in fictional personalities it succeeds outstandingly, for me.” —Nadine Gordimer, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature   “A brilliant book.” —The Guardian   “A Family Madness is an ambitious and successful book which makes connections we need to think about, and its deepest subject, the one that links all the odd and various strands of the story, is not history or violence or craziness but loyalty: the price of loyalty, and the blindnesses loyalty permits.” —The Times Literary Supplement   “Outstanding . . . A pleasure to read, a richly conceived and eloquently executed novel.” —Dan Cryer, Newsday  '
