Description

Peter Carey’s novel of the undeclared love between clergyman Oscar Hopkins and the heiress Lucinda Leplastrier is both a moving and beautiful love story and a historical tour de force set in Victorian times. Made for each other, the two are gamblers – one obsessive, the other compulsive – incapable of winning at the game of love.

Oscar and Lucinda is now available as a Faber Modern Classics edition.
