‘An insightful journey into passion, the nature of reality and what we are prepared to give up to remain human.’ SOUTH WALES ARGUS

‘…I was totally swept up by the passion and energy of McGahan’s writing, the hint of something truly profound lurking within the narrative…I’ll be recommending it to as many people as possible.’ CANBERRA TIMES
