Reviews

Praise for Sixteen Shades of Crazy:`This anti-romantic portrayal of modern valley life rings with musical dialogue and hangover humour.' THE INDEPENDENT`Trezise opens up the lives of her characters with surgical skill, making you wince as well as laugh.' THE WESTERN MAIL`We in the know have come to expect brilliance from Rachel Trezise, and Sixteen Shades of Crazy doesn't disappoint. This is a powerful, unflinching and extremely funny novel. It's a beauty.'DAN RHODES`Seamless and thoroughly enjoyable...A keen observer of contemporary culture, Trezise has penned yet another winner.' THE SUN-HERALD`Sixteen Shades of Crazy is a dirty but Day-Glo slice of modern Valleys life.' NEW WELSH REVIEW`written with great energy and verbal skill and its characters ... are immediately engaging.' SYDNEY MORNING HERALD`Trezise sings a sharp and suffocating song.' THE AGE`On the one hand Sixteen Shades of Crazy finds Trezise sticking to her literary award-winning formula; unflinching yarns about the lifestyles, aspirations and collective hustle of working class characters (caricatures you might think on occasion) from her native Welsh valleys. On the other, her use of multiple narrative voices - switching between three women whose friendship seems fuelled by convenience rather than closeness - ramps up the interest factor of an already highly readable book.' BUZZ MAGAZINEPraise for Rachel Trezise:`Trezise is an outstanding young writer, with a wonderfully sharp,cynical take on contemporary Wales.'THE TIMES`The new face of literature.'HARPERS & QUEEN`A major new literary talent.'THE WESTERN MAIL`Trezise writes with an irresistible self-indulgence...the same complete command of the English language as the heavyweights of contemporary fiction.'THE BIG ISSUE
