Reviews

He weaves his magic and the reader falls under his spell. * Guardian *
[Keneally] looks into the heart of the human condition with a piercing intelligence that few can match. * Sunday Telegraph *
He does an extraordinary job of making all his characters compelling and sympathetic * Kirkus Reviews *
No one equals Keneally for documenting the actions of human beings caught up in war, some desperate to hold onto their humanity, others desperate to die. * Publishers Weekly *
Keneally is especially good at rendering the small psychological adjustments made between people embarking on intimacy * New York Times Book Review *
Fine writing that has the power to entice modern readers and those interested in the truthful reflection of the human spirit, no matter the place, culture or generation. * New York Daily News *
Keneally has a Tolstoy-like gift for getting into his characters' heads, as well as for portraying great turns of history in scenes of everyday life. * Dallas Morning News *
Keneally's gift, and his blessing to the many hundreds of characters he has created, is always to find the extraordinary within the ordinary. Each of them rises out of and above their varying backgrounds: the class, religion, ambition that mark but do not define them. * The Australian *
