'This dark, powerful novel, painfully true to life, bleakly and intelligently questions the ramifications of personal responsibility.' Adelaide Advertiser, 'Highly recommended.' Sarah Mayor Cox, Bendigo Advertiser, 'A profound probing of the nature of friendship. This is a clever, literate book that enjoys language. It explores how we might incorporate the bad things that happen to us, move to a greater understanding and accommodate tragedy within ourselves.'
