From the good listener who begins to betray the secrets confided to her, to vignettes of a city storm or the slow halting of spring, these stories are gifts of originality and depth.

Her prose is wondrous: it is clean, deliberate; an aesthetic so certain of itself, it's breathtaking Daily Telegraph A unique and authentic voice that speaks to the reader across time and culture, heart to heart -- Boyd Tonkin (The Listener) is a masterpiece of subtlety and simplicitiy. The rest of the stories in this collection are every bit as crisp, ironic, elegant and ruthless Saga Magazine
