‘The stories in this collection are nuanced, captivating and accomplished. With the briefest of brushstrokes, they reveal vivid and complex worlds. Australian short fiction is indeed alive and well.’
— Maxine Beneba Clarke

‘Like the best short fiction should, these stories leave room for interpretation, and echo the despair of the modern age while still providing a glimmer of something close to hope.’
— Saturday Paper

‘A consistently high-quality collection…the sort of fiction that is firmly grounded in character and narrative.’
— The Age / The Sydney Morning Herald

‘This volume truly has something for everyone, and is a wonderful way to discover some excellent emerging Australian writers.’
