Reviews

This is the saddest love story I have ever read ... Like the best fiction, it is excessive, impossible to contain in any review * Sydney Review of Books *
One of the most beautiful, furious and urgent novels to be published [in Australia] in recent years * The Australian *
This is not myth as Western culture understands it: not an imagined dimension, but a literal if incorporeal one that bisects and animates the physical world; it makes for marvellous theatre * London Review of Books *
[A] bruising, beautiful, brutal narrative ... a bitter, lovely and tragic book * Australian Book Review *
Rich with allegory and symbolism, this wild, explosive story blends the myths and legends of numerous cultures in a dystopian near future ... profound ... Significant and contemporary * Booklist *
Astonishingly inventive * The Oprah Magazine *
