He is perhaps most famous for his Schindler's Ark (1982), which won the Booker Prize and is the basis of the filmSchindler's List.

Three Cheers for the Paraclete (1968), comic novel of a doubting priest.
The Survivor (1969), a survivor looks back on a disastrous Arctic expedition.
A Dutiful Daughter (1971), Keneally's personal favorite.
The Chant of Jimmy Blacksmith (1972), also filmed. Written through the eyes of an exploited Aborigine who explodes in rage. Based on an actual incident. Keneally has said he would not now presume to write in the voice of an Aborigine, but would have written the story as seen by a white character.
