Latest reviews

  • “It is a timely narrative that looks at a family in a working-class Sydney suburb in the lead up to the infamous Tampa affair.”
    — The Reading Women, Apr 1 2019
  • “In her timely and powerful novel, Castagna (Small Indiscretions) successfully delves into issues of immigration, urban development, and xenophobia. [ . . . ] This is a haunting and compassionate consideration of the question of who can and cannot come into a country.”
    — Publishers Weekly, Apr 1 2019
  • “A lightly spun story that, while never preachy or didactic, is full of timely lessons for those pondering the rise of me-first nationalism throughout the world.”
