Theft (original 2006; edition 2007)
by Peter Carey
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0307276481, Paperback)Michael "Butcher" Boone is an ex-“really famous" painter, now reduced to living in a remote country house and acting as caretaker for his younger brother, Hugh. Alone together they've forged a delicate equilibrium, a balance instantly destroyed when a mysterious young woman named Marlene walks out of a rainstorm and into their lives. Beautiful, smart, and ambitious, she's also the daughter-in-law of the late great painter Jacques Liebovitz. Soon Marlene sets in motion a chain of events that could be the making--or the ruin--of them all.

Once again displaying Peter Carey's flair for language, 'Theft' is a love poem of a very different kind. Ranging from the rural wilds of Australia to Manhattan via Tokyo, it explores themes of art, fraud, responsibility and redemption.
