Peter Carey's protagonist nods off in his high rise, Melbourne apartment for The FT Weekend by Marc Aspinall

The FT Weekend

Amnesia Book Review

My interpretation of the short review for Amnesia a novel by Peter Carey; loosely a story about Felix, one of the last Australian left-wing journalist, who is tasked with penning a biography on recently arrested cyber-hacker Gaby Baillieux. Gabby set out her Angel worm virus; which was targeted directly at the Australian prison computer system, setting free hundreds of asylum seekers . Now Felix has to find a means for her cooperation, pen her story and hopefully save his career in the process.
