‘Motherhood’ in His Illegal Self by Peter Carey
European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine,
2020, Volume 7, Issue 11, Pages 147-152
AbstractPeter Carey’s new novel His Illegal Self exemplifies his career obsession with double lives, fakery and the breaking of rules-legal, moral and personal. Carey is a thoroughly modern writer, smashing genre boundaries, ranging in tone from wild comedy to grim tragedy, viewing the past with a decidedly contemporary eye and firmly placing the late twentieth century adventures like My Life as a Fake, Theft: a Love Story and His Illegal Self in social and cultural contexts.
