Author Info
Thomas Keneally
Thomas Keneally was educated at various schools in New South Wales before entering a seminary to study for the Catholic priesthood. He abandoned this goal in 1960 and turned to clerical work and schoolteaching. His first novel was published in 1964. He then became a full-time writer, the author of over 20 books. (He has said that he would like to be able to disown his first two novels, particularly "The Fear", which he calls "the obligatory account of one's childhood.") Keneally has been short-listed for the Booker Prize four times, finally winning it in 1982 with his novel "Schindler's Ark", which became the movie "Schindler's List". Keneally has also won the Miles Franklin Award twice, and was awarded the Order of Australia in 1983 for his services to Australian literature. He considers "A Dutiful Daughter" the best novel he has written.He has lived in both Sydney and California.
"Not since 'For Whom the Bell Tolls' has a book of such sophistication, the work of a major international novelist, spoken out so unambiguously on behalf of an armed struggle."
