Oscar and Lucinda by Peter Carey

Oscar and Lucinda mentions several authors of the time period it is set in.
Wilkie Collins,
Charles Dickens, Barchester Towers is named
George Elliot
and Charles Darwin.
There might have been others mentioned, but I missed them.
Carey's use of mentioning mid-Victorian popular helps to give the novel a genuine feel.
