Remembering Babylon by David Malouf - Suberb novel set in the colonial past of Australia (a library staff favorite).
"There are passages of aching beauty in Remembering Babylon, and passages of shocking degradation. Mr. Malouf has written a wonderfully wise and moving novel, a novel that turns the history and mythic past of Australia into a dazzling fable of human hope and imperfection."
--New York Times review
Actually the Times published two reviews: the other one.
