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.
