"Very amusing, ironic and wise... a success, no doubt about it" * Sydney Morning Herald * "A novel of epic proportions. It's not merely about characters and events, but also about shapes and landscapes, history and the future, fact and falsehood, light and darkness... He writes with a rare perception of the Australian struggle for a defineable identity in bold, inventive, often wildly funny prose" -- David Rooney * Time Out * "The work of a dazzling imagination" -- Kate Saunders * Independent *
