'This is an extraordinary work that exemplifies all of Goldsworthy's talents ... Its finale is magnificent.'

Matthew Condon, Overland

'A tour-de-force of control and compression ... One of the many fine things in this splendid novella is Goldsworthys meticulous description.'

Andrew Riemer, Sydney Morning Herald

'Goldsworthy's genius as a writer is that he engages us in a whole range of emotions from humour to farce to profound sadness ... [The novella] is simple brilliant and utterly engaging.'

Peter O'Connor, The Age
