Insistently Close

It’s not often your book picks up an honour like this: a capsule review by Kerryn Goldsworthy, running in both The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald, which illuminates your aims precisely:

[Daniel Davis Wood] is one of those surprisingly rare writers whose prose style and powers of observation do justice to each other. The first-person narration puts the grieving father insistently close, like the Ancient Mariner, but one of the best things about this novel is the way it makes us think about the relationship between personal tragedies and human catastrophes on a grand scale.

And it’s the Age and Herald pick of the week!
