Reviews

"Just sometimes, a book is so complete, so compelling and potent, that you are fearful of breaking its hold. This is one: a novel about (as its title might suggest) devastating damage and the humanity that, almost unfathomably, remains...with awesome skill and whiplash wit, Evie Wyld knits together past and present, with tension building all the time. In Peter Carey and Tim Winton, Australia has produced two if the finest storytellers working today. On this evidence, Wyld can match them both" -- Stephanie Cross * Daily Mail *
"Wyld sympathetically explores the blight of war and violence on three generations of a working-class Australian family" -- Gabriel Byng * New Statesman *
"Wyld's first novel is a remarkable achievement: a potent and compelling exploration of the connections between father and son, and the legacy of violence and repression" * bookmunch.wordpress.com/ *
"Superb first novel" -- Kate Saunders * The Times *
"Wyld has a feel for beauty and for the ugliness of inherited pain" * The New Yorker *
