Reviews

Dead Europe sets sharp realism against folk tale and fable, a world of hauntings and curses against a fiercely political portrait of a society. The energy in the writing, the pure fire in the narrative voice and the fearlessness of the tone make the novel immensely readable, as well as fascinating and original, and establish Christos Tsiolkas in the first rank of contemporary novelists. * Colm Toibin *
A novel of the most astonishing and disturbing eloquence ... shocking but beautiful. -- David Marr * Sydney Morning Herald *
Breathtakingly good... One of Tsiolkas'sstrengths is the ability to reveal gentleness lying where none might be expected. his prose is... achingly tender and beautiful. -- Ian Syson * The Age *
Brilliant ... unsettling ... It can shake you out of complacency, it can make you search your own soul to discover what's lurking there and what you really believe. And it can radically alter your view of the world... This blasphemous, disturbing, in-your-face book does all three. -- Sara Dowse * Canberra Times *
