  • This is the single most amazing book I have ever read I studied this book for the better part of a year, and was still coming up with new ideas, concepts meanings behind the words that Astley has masterfully sewn into its plot Even now I m discovering new allusions, quotes and references Reading the anthology at face value, you know you re reading something beautiful Delve a little deeper, attempt to discover Astley greater purpose and you ll realise just how ingenious Astley truly was this is a [...]


  • One of my all time favourite books Clever, insightful, dry and sometimes very funny Astley wields words like a circus knife act and I find myself too terrified to flinch.

  • My yearly reading of a Thea Astley work Choosing the collection of short stories Hunting the Wild Pineapple reminded me of how much I enjoy reading her work Ladies only need apply was the one that stood out for me.


  • PMQ library.Tried to read this book to gain another dimension of Astley This book was a series of cameos about characters in the top part of Australia.Although some characters were interesting, salt of the earth, Far North Queensland types, the book itself seemed disjointed.
