The Potato Factory by Bryce CourtnayThis excellent novel sat on my bookshelf for some months before I finally got around to reading it I am not sure why perhaps it was the title that did not strike the right cords I even picked it up a couple of times but dismissed it What an oversight that was The Potato Factory is a journey back in time to Dickensian London and all the filth and sualor that inspired Charles Dickens to pen his many novels and in particular Oliver Twist Although written as a work of fiction the author chose this route to publication only as a method of filling out the bare facts as recorded in historical periodicals of the time both here and in Van Demons Land As a work of fiction he was also afforded the luxury of adding some excellent dialogueThe central character in this true tale is Ikey Solomon whom most readers will recognise as Fagan from Oliver Twist This was no coincidence as he was the inspiration behind this well known classic as were many other colourful characters such as Sparrow Fart The Artful Dodger and Bob Marley Bill Sykes Other Characters include Sperm Whale Sally and Billygoneueer Charles Dickens himself is reputed to have interview Sparrow Fart in his capacity as a young reporter after the well documented escape from Newgate prison and trial of Ikey Solomon at the old baileyWith such a cast this is a hard book to put down In a society where petty criminals could be hanged or transported for merely picking a pocket or prostitution the reader will cringe at the cruelty and hypocrisy of the so called law and aristocracyThe second half of this book is set in Van Demons Land Now Tasmania but to find out how our immigrants fare you are just going to have to read it for yourselfFascinating in its detail of real characters and actual events and consuming in its prose The Potato Factory
