In 'True History of the Kelly Gang', the novel that won the Booker Prize in 2000, the voice of Australia's second most famous Catholic (perhaps, after Mary MacKillop) testifies to the religious dislocation of his family. Ned Kelly's immigrant Irish parents lost the bearings of their faith in their new surroundings. Author Peter Carey has Ned evoke a religious culture of folk devotions defeated by Australia.
