it was amazing

I read this at the suggestion of the author, in order to give we workshop participants at a Sydney Writers' Festival one piece of common ground. I liked the book so much that I went out and got 'Tamar' as well. Love in the time of Cuban missile crises, you might say.

It is offered as YA, but this is an adult novel that is suitable, eminently so, for younger adults. Excellent writing, deft, controlled and clever.

Mal Peet is definitely suitable as a house pet, a lovely bloke!
