Robert Fairhead reviews Bluebottle by Belinda Castles:
“Castles has written a beautiful book. Her flowing narrative, well-crafted characters and underlying dark suspense had me hooked until the last page.”
An oracle, a small town, and a disappearing sea—Robert Fairhead reviews the unconventional Australian novel Dyschronia by Jennifer Mills.
‘The history books and literature are largely written about and by men. But not in A Roman Death. In this book, Roman women live and love and hate, anything but silently.’
‘Microfiction relies on the skill of the writer and the imagination of the reader to tell a story. McCreery’s gift is in writing immediately recognisable vignettes.’
‘Sweeties is a reminder of the pinball-game nature of life, with its random bumps and bonus scores.’
