'Put simple, I feel this is one of the most important poetic narratives to have appeared in English anywhere, at any time. This is a cathartic masterpiece, a work of female desire that traumatises gender, makes liberties out of its incorrectitudes.' John Kinsella.
'This is a work which bets to be re-read annually, allowing it to mature and reveal its many layers of meaning, over time.
'This is one for the lovers of poetry, novels, erotica and queer fiction, as well as anyone curious about that quirky genre, the verse novel.' Tracey Korsten. Glam Adelaide.
'Brilliant is quite possibly the only word to use when describing the intensity of this text. Everall comprises a concerto of sing-song poems which progressively dive deeper into a dark, dirty land of desire. Here whim, want and wisdom whirl up to surround the unlikely heroine, the wanton wannabe Dona Juanita, in a contorted costumery of crushes gone awry. 'In this narrative title piece, Dona Juanita, the modern, mythic maiden demented desire is made clear with brutal accuracy. "She eats out their eyes/with a spoon/gourmet meals are/supposed to be small". Everall coos instantly mocking the menace of men.' Scott-Patrick Mitchell. Out-in-Perth.
