Cleaning out the closet is typically a woman's task. It is also a perfect metaphor for the creative endeavour as it rummages through junk - items long discarded or abandoned - for signs of renewal. In the tradition of the great female storytellers - Alice Munro, Doris Lessing, Katherine Mansfield, Virginia Woolf - Mary Pomfret reveals the dramatic, consequential and often painful intimacies harboured within the seemingly innocuous details of family life.' - Sue Gillett'Mary Pomfret's fiction explores uncanny inner landscapes of memory and desire. Her stories challenge the amnesia behind everyday existence and after a reading we are reacquainted with our strangely familiar, vulnerable and eminently human better selves.' - Ian Irvine'Mary Pomfret's stories speak to the heart of family darkness, sibling rivalry, filial love and lost innocence, without for an instant being melodramatic or overwrought. These beautiful, compelling tales are peopled with complex characters and told by a writer who makes the domestic sublime.' - Alice Pung
