Reviews

A beautiful mad romp of a novel . . . Prepare to be dazzled
Daily Mail
Keneally has written yet another remarkable book . . . It's also a ripper of a read
Sunday Express
Jacko gets into some fine scrapes; the descriptions of life on his family's Northern Territory ranch and of Sydney's cultured classes are effortlessly rich; it is fun deciding whether Bickham, the Nobel-winning writer, portrayed with such marvellous subtlety, is "really" Patrick White
Daily Telegraph
Deftly and entertainingly told
