Reviews

"A masterpiece, exquisitely written, pithy and wise and overwhelmingly moving, constructed with invisible, successful craft that leaves the reader wondering how in the world it has been done."
--Alberto Manguel, "The Australian"

"Though Malouf's sparingly deployed details, vigorous language, and sly wit humanize these tragic heroes, the story is unmistakably epic and certainly the stuff of legend."
"--Publishers Weekly "(starred review)

"Lithe, graceful . . . Deeply moving . . . Nothing short of magical. Malouf's prose is delicate, marvellously alert to the natural world and endowed with a quality that has one name only: wisdom."
"--Sydney Morning Herald
"
"This book shines new light on this story of the Trojan War, adding twists and reflections as well as flashes of earthly humour."
"--Brisbane News
"
"The sheer potency of this slim volume can hijack your senses and emotions."
"--The Courier-Mail
"
"Fiction, in Malouf's hands, becomes the art of rendering the world coherent. For this we must be grateful."
"--The Australian Literary Review"

"[David Malouf is] Australia's finest writer."
"--The Australian"
