Product description

Review

‘A luminous look at a city at a time of change, a time when the building of the Sydney Opera House was a reach for greatness.’, The New York Times

‘Olsson’s writing is beautiful, captivating, and is enough in itself to recommend this book … Her descriptions are vivid, evocative.’ , New York Journal of Books

‘A classic in the making.’, Australian Financial Review

‘Evocative, learned and moving...’ , The Sunday Times UK

‘This is a novel with a sharp eye, a warm heart and sprawling ambitions, painted on the most splendid canvas of all.’, The Australian

‘Beautiful and glowing … a book that glows with golden light, with arguments about art and belief, while it is also infused with the politics of its characters and its time.’, The Bookshelf, ABC

Shell is a novel packed with ideas, rich in detail and dense with research … as clear and delicate as liquid glass … ’ , New Zealand Listener

‘A beautifully crafted, spellbinding story of love, loss and identity, set in the shadow of the Vietnam War, for readers who loved All the Light We Cannot See and The Goldfinch.’, NetGalley

‘This narrative of war and hope, the old and the new world, makes Shell a novel of energy and enlightenment, and, to boot, a source of delightful reading.’ -- Tom Keneally

‘A timely reminder of the importance of making a stand on the things that really matter...’ , Booktopia --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
