… this wise and melancholy book mingles exhilaration and elegy The Australian
… [a] quietly moving tale of a working class boy’s search for love and life beyond the confines of the world he grew up in. Sydney Morning Herald

… a meditation about travel as a defining part of living: be it living in the Cretan port of Chania, mixing with the local and ex-pat community and learning about writing, or moving to England, going to Oxford and being taught literature along the way. [Kinnane’s] description of time with William Empson or attending the lectures of E.P. Thompson are vivid and memorable. Sydney Morning Herald
