The novel grips the reader’s emotions as it moves to a haunting conclusion.” —Publishers Weekly   “[Digging to Australia is] poignant and observant, capturing the confusion of adolescence and mixing bizarre elements with everyday life. The author leads the reader through a maze of images, resolving the conflicts she creates with skill and elegance. Recommended for public libraries.” —Library Journal   “Mesmerizing . . . a shrewd, efficient, invasive novel—first-rate.” —Kirkus Reviews   “Lurid, loud and enormously enjoyable.” —The Sunday Times   “Glaister is particularly good at evoking the all-pervading unease of people who want to forget their ill deeds but can’t.
