Great World Writers: Twentieth Century - Vol. 6

By Patrick M. O'Neil | Go to book overview


Thomas Keneally

BORN: October 7, 1935, Sydney, Australia

IDENTIFICATION: Australian author of fiction, nonfiction, and drama,
known especially for his detailed historical novels dealing with issues of
personal responsibility, morality, and war.

SIGNIFICANCE: Thomas Keneally is an extremely prolific writer who has
produced on average a book every 18 months, along with a constant stream
of shorter work. His fame is greatest in his native Australia, where he is con-
sidered one of its most revered authors. His best-known novel is Schindlers
Ark
(1982), later made into an Academy Award-winning film under the
book's American title, Schindlers List. Together the novel and the movie,
which in different ways tell the story of Oskar Schindler and the Jews he res-
cued, have made the name Schindler practically a household word. Though
many of Keneally's books are about Australia, his other topics have included
Eritrean independence, South Polar exploration, the American Civil War, and
Irish history.
