Reviews

'Thanks to the poetic simplicity of Whiteley's prose, it is more intimate and more thematically textured than many novels four times that length... an intriguing "what if?" of a tale, one that keeps us transfixed and wondering right up to the final pages and with an ending that won't easily be forgotten.' -- Starburst Magazine 'Summoning the spirits of D.H. Lawrence and H.E. Bates and channelling the ancient pagan practices of eerie rural England to go somewhere utterly unexpected, The Arrival Of Missives is beguiling, brilliant and odd. Not since Alan Garner have such expansive themes been so keenly tied to place and so evocatively explored.' -- Benjamin Myers, author of Beastings 'Stark, poetic, forthright and live with the numinous. One of the most original and haunting stories I have read in recent years.' -- Nina Allan
