Reviews

I loved Past the Shallows - Kevin Powers, author of The Yellow Birds This is an extraordinary debut novel, part psychological family drama, part mystery, part painful rite of passage, engulfed in the wild isolation and natural richness of the Tasmanian coast. Favel's intimate understanding of this rugged heel of the world seeps through every pore of this book. - The Australian Woman's Weekly This book is that rare thing, a finely crafted literary novel that is genuinely moving and full of heart. - The Age Parrett's starkly precise evocation of Tasmania's winter landscape [is] compelling. The book's tragic outcome leaves the reader feeling genuinely bereft. - The Guardian, UK Beautiful, stripped-back prose...there is magic here. Like Cormac McCarthy, Parrett packs a huge emotional punch thanks to the elegant brevity of her style. Stark, but unforgettable. - Marie Claire Magazine, UK
