About the Author

Thomas Keneally began his writing career in 1964 and has published thirty novels since. They include Schindler's Ark, which won the Booker Prize in 1982 and was subsequently made into the film Schindler's List, and The Chant Of Jimmie Blacksmith, Confederates and Gossip From The Forest, each of which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. His most recent novels are The Daughters Of Mars, which was shortlisted for the Walter Scott Prize in 2013, and Shame and the Captives. He has also written several works of non-fiction, including his memoir Homebush Boy, Searching for Schindler and Australians. He is married with two daughters and lives in Sydney.


Thomas Keneally has a keen eye for out-of-the-way cultural juxtapositions. Along with it goes an energetically eclectic imagination . . . out of the atmosphere on a beleaguered aircraft, he generates stifling suspense * The Sunday Times * The reader's anxiety is awoken soon after take-off and is kept to a high pitch throughout * The Times * A smooth and elevated entertainment * Independent * A fast, memorable read . . . when we look at the century in retrospect, he will emerge as one of the great writers * Literary Review * A novel of great scope, intelligence and humanity * The Scotsman * Enthralling . . . ranks with Keneally's Booker-winning best * Daily Mail * Guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat . . . by the time the narrative puts its breaks on, you find he has navigated his fast-moving thriller over an impressive amount of thematic territory * The Sunday Times * As an intellectual piece of suspense, Flying Hero Class can hardly be surpassed * Observer * Once you start reading, you can't put it down * Guardian *
