Wickedly funny and glamorous ... an irresistible, gripping read *
There's almost a fairytale aspect to this story from 2000 of the prodigal returning, in this case the prodigal daughter ... Tilly is a fun and dark creation. * Sunday Herald *
Blessed with an astringently unsentimental tone and a talent for creating memorably eccentric characters, Ham also possesses a confidently brisk and mischievous sense of plot * Sydney Morning Herald *
Ham writes delightfully rich set pieces and descriptive passages ... her eye for the absurd, the comical and the poignant are highly tuned ... one to savour and enjoy * Weekend Australian *
