Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Ham is a gifted storyteller, her ideas are fresh, unusual and entertaining, and result in marvellous stories steeped in an Australia at once recognisable but also new. There’s not a cliché within cooee. Ham also has a great talent for arranging words, using them sparsely to express the most fantastic sentiments…

Rebecca Green, The Sun Herald

‘As anyone who read Rosalie Ham’s debut novel, The Dressmaker, knows, she is a true original. Blessed with an astringently unsentimental tone and a talent for creating memorably eccentric characters, Ham also possesses a confidently brisk and mischievous sense of plot.

‘The authenticity of every detail is never in doubt from this consummate but unshowy storyteller.

Caroline Baum, Sydney Morning Herald
