1 263 Carey, Peter Tax Inspector
Hardcover Knopf: NY; 1991; First US Edition Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust wrapper 
Bottom board edge has a small dent; dw slightly rubbed; Author, from Australia, is a three-time Booker Prize winner. ; 'Granny Catchprice runs her family business (and her family) with senility, cunning and a handbagful of explosives. Her daughter Cathy would rather be singing County & Western than selling cars, while Benny Catchprice, sixteen and seriously psychopathic, wants to transform a failing auto franchise into an empire -- and himself into an angel. Out of the confrontation between the Catchprices and their unwitting nemesis, a beautiful and very pregnant agent of the Australian Taxation Office, Peter Carey, author of Oscar and Lucinda, creates an endlessly surprising and fearfully convincing novel. '- Chicago Tribune
