'[A] beautifully presented short-story collection....Co-editor Danielle Wood does have a wonderful contemporary story in the book, portraying a sleep-deprived new mother coming to terms with the changes in her world. Wood manages to merge the contours and endlessness of Tasmania with the mother's sense of being lost to herself.' Readings Monthly
