reviewed: The Anatomy of Wings
Sad and very sweetly told.
The Anatomy of Wings - Karen Foxlee
reviewed: The Courier's New Bicycle
Great premise: hormones, animals, politics, gender. Fun, but doesn't quite dig enough; genre-nostalgic.
The Courier's New Bicycle - Kim Westwood
reviewed: Amongst Women Pb
Not a word out of place. If you only read one broody Irish novel about the tyranny of family, make it this one.
Amongst Women Pb - John McGahern
reviewed: The Robber Bridegroom
A fine fairy tale.
The Robber Bridegroom - Eudora Welty
reviewed: The Fine Colour of Rust
Funny, charming story of rural battlers. A great read.
The Fine Colour of Rust - Paddy O'Reilly
reviewed: Get Well Soon!: My (Un)Brilliant Career as a Nurse
Nurses have the best stories. Chambers tells them with magnificent comic poise.

Adelaide - Kerryn Goldsworthy
reviewed: How a Moth Becomes a Boat
Rowe's voice is unique, her short short fiction delicately built. Looking forward to her new collection in August.
