'...one of the most interesting writers of his generation... has an imaginative largesse and sentence-by-sentence articulation that soars above the pack.' - Peter Craven, The Australian. '...prose that fizzes with energy and humour, leaping from the scatalogical to the lyrical, from the earthy to the sublime.' - The Adelaide Advertiser. 'Cameron writes a tough, gutsy story that is so well crafted you know there's someone behind the wheel from the word go.' - The Age.
