• Australia is lucky to have Keneally. Few writers have a public voice that one wants to take to the bedroom... He gets down and dirty with his characters form their perspective at the time... complex moderate and humane... likely to endure

    Nicholas Shakespeare, Daily Telegraph
  • Evocative, broad-ranging and intelligently observed

    Mail on Sunday
  • Keneally has deployed his outstanding talents as a narrative writer to produce an enlivening, informative and judicious book about his country's troubled origins

    Barclay McBain, Herald
  • Keneally has always had a grand talent for the telling of a tale. His rattling account of the genesis of his native city is one of his very best

    Carmen Callil, The Times
  • The Commonwealth of Thieves is immaculately researched and historically exact... a great read and a useful scholarly account of an extraordinary event described with gusto and sympathy

    Kate Grenville, Guardian
