The Playmaker: A Novel

'“The best performance of a novelist’s magic that I have seen since William Kennedy’s Ironweed . . . A style of rich chance-taking fiction that we don’t encounter often enough on our shores.” —The Washington Post   “Intricately plotted, peopled with several dozen incisively observed, individually fascinating characters this seems to be the book Keneally’s career has been reaching toward. He has created a world so rich and strange that we experience it as if in a dream, while never for a moment doubting either its authenticity or its ultimate truth.” —Chicago Tribune   “Keneally’s style is earthy yet dignified, pungent and powerful and yet able to record the most subtle and delicate shadings.” —The Globe and Mail (Toronto)   “Historical fiction at its best.” —Houston Chronicle'
