The Incredible Here and Now got its first review on Radio National yesterday. It's always completely nerve wreaking waiting for reviews in those first few weeks a book is published. Sometimes your book doesn't get reviewed at all. I'm not sure what is worse- bad reviews or complete silence. The reviews of my last book were pretty positive but surprising in that a lot of the reviewers pointed out habits I had as a writer and themes I was writing about that I'd never really been aware of. I learned a lot from those reviews and they really made me go back and think about what I was trying to achieve as a writer.
Anyways, here's my first review on the ABC's 'Books and Arts Show' by Fiona Scott Norman.
