Reviews of Books by Australians

Tim Martin, in "The Independent", thinks DBC Pierre's Ludmilla's Broken English is a transitional work. He's hoping Pierre's next will live up to the high promise of parts of this one.

John Sutherland thinks the allegory in the novel is laid on a bit too thick, in "The Times".

Also in "The Times", Morris Gleitzman's Once is praised by Nicolette Jones.

Sean O'Brien finds a lot to like about The Secret River by Kate Grenville, but also thinks that she "doesn't trust her art, or the reader's wits, enough to let the writing do its work without some moral nudging."
