Reviews

"Chloe Hooper's masterful book of reportage is a kind of moral thriller about power, wretchedness and violence" * Philip Roth * "It is impossible to overestimate the importance of this book" -- Peter Carey "Hooper fills in the background with a light touch.... She instinctively grasps the most telling detail... This is a brilliant vignette in which one appalling incident illuminates a saga of social breakdown" -- Sara Wheeler * The Times * "Queensland's police force - along with its tourist board - won't thank Hooper for The Tall Man, but the rest of us should. This meticulous, compelling portrayal of the dark side of Australian life deserves the widest possible audience" * Sunday Times * "An important, brilliant, perceptive book" * Literary Review *
