First reviews of The Penguin Book of the Ocean

This month’s Australian Literary Review features a fantastic review of The Penguin Book of the Ocean by Jennifer Moran. Unfortunately it’s not online, and I didn’t get a chance to pop something up yesterday when it was in the print edition, but suffice it to say it’s pretty much the sort of review authors (and editors!) dream about:

“Bradley has collected admirably: allusions and echoes tie the pieces to each other, building a layered and complex whole that is as varied as its subject. Like energy rolling through a wave, the shifts of pace and mood keep the reader constantly engaged.”

The book’s also just had a rave from Geordie Williamson on ABC 702, which is fantastic. Again it’s not online, but if it turns up I’ll link to it.

In the meantime, at the risk of sounding like a cracked record, you can pick up a copy at your local bookstore or check out online pricing on Booko.
