"Frew's House of Sticks may well be the standout debut Australian novel of 2011."
--Patrick Allington, Adelaide Advertiser
"[A] fascinating debut novel."
"My debut Australian novel of the year is Peggy Frew's terrific domestic/rock'n'roll tale, House of Sticks."
--Australian Book Review
"In House of Sticks, Frew creates a penetrating study of the impact of parenthood on a modern couple."
"[Frew] shows real talent in her debut novel, which is sophisticated and extremely well written...Readers of all ages will enjoy Frew's engaging prose." FOUR STARS
--Bookseller & Publisher magazine
"House of Sticks affords an achingly lifelike glimpse into contemporary Australian domesticity. Frew's style is colloquial, photorealistic, and yet in its knife-edge focus it is able to slip into a darker, hidden world of psychological fissure and urban dread."
"Excellently unnerving...A tantalisingly strong debut."
"[House of Sticks is] the kind of tune that hovers in the air well after the last note has sounded."
"An accomplished and compassionate portrait of contemporary family life in all its delights and drudgery."
"Her [Frew's] prose is deceptively powerful...House of Sticks is vivid and contemporary on the page."
"Peggy Frew's crystalline eye observes the shoreline of domestic life...Helen Garner meets Henry James in this suburban gothic, where innocence can turn to menace in a moment, love to resentment, and trust to prickling suspicion."
"Brilliant. Peggy Frew is a superb writer, and this is a remarkably confident debut."
