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
