KENEALLY, Thomas (Michael)
(1935-)
   Australian writer best known for Bring Larks and Heroes (1967 UK) and for Schindler's Ark (1982 UK), vtSchindler's Listwhich won the Booker Prize, but who has several times edged into generic displacements to contain a remarkably intense and occasionally visionary imagination. His first novel, The Place at Whitton (1964 UK), is horror. Blood Red,Sister Rose (1974 UK) is an historical fantasy. Victim of the Aurora (1977), which can be read as a detection, feels like sf in that it depicts Antarctica exactly as an sf writer might depict an alien planet. Ned Kelly and the City of the Bees (1978 UK) is juvenile sf. The eponymous human foetus in Passenger (1979 UK) has been transformed by laser-scan into a conscious and articulate being.
