Prestwick House Picks Six World Lit Books Worthy of Your Attention

Check out this Prestwick House list of six world lit books you should teach this year.   It includes...

True History of the Kelly Gang
Peter Carey
A historical fiction novel, True History of the Kelly Gang is told from the point of view of Ned Kelly, the Australian bushranger and folk hero. The novel may be challenging for students to read due to the unconventional writing style and punctuation, but the action-packed story of robberies, shootings, and horse thefts will surely hold their attention. The tale demonstrates the corruption of authority and lawlessness that was prevalent in 19th century Australia.
