Top 40 Book Club : December 2008
A Fraction of the Whole STEVE TOLTZ SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2008 MAN BOOKER PRIZE. This is the story of the fictional Dean family. Terry Dean has led a life of crime and is Australia’s most notorious and beloved criminal. After his death, elder brother Martin Dean is left to live in his brother’s shadow. Martin’s son, Jasper, records the families exploits in hilarious detail. The story takes the reader from rural Australian jails to mental hospitals, to bohemian Paris and central Europe, and from brothels to casinos. Full of light- hearted observations about human behaviour, black humour, sarcasm and cynicism, this is a very modern Australian novel. 28
