  • "There is no other Australian novelist writing at present with such a finely judged mixture of zany wit and unforced wisdom, with such a control of character and material, such urbanity and exuberance...Dancing on Coral is witty, wry and extraordinarily evocative of the mental muddles of the 1960s. The book's undeniable brilliance stems from a number of things - the sophistication of its approach combined with the directness of its telling; the strength and awfulness of its characters; the sheer obliqueness of angle between understanding and actions; the continual teasing references to island, to birds, to boxes and to bodies adrift on coral or on ice..."
