"Throughout, the prose continually evokes the environment and the effect of time and place on each individual's life; for large collections." - Library Journal.
"Reading these rich, beautifully wrought stories, you can almost smell the ti trees and hear the screeching as the cockatoos take flight." - The New York Times.
"A "complete stories" volume is an honor, which this Australian writer well deserves." - Booklist.
