Peter Carey

Peter Carey published his first novel, Bliss, in 1981. Since then he's written a further eight, and won the Booker Prize twice - for Oscar and Lucinda and True History of the Kelly Gang. In this special edition of Open Book he talks to Mariella Frostrup about his new book, Theft: A Love Story; about his continuing interest in the difference between truth and fakery, and why he teaches his creative writing students to keep a weather diary.
