Reviews, etc for Window Gods

Saturday 6 December: A nice review today in The Age in Melbourne, the Sydney Morning Herald, The Canberra Times and Brisbane Times.

During the week Sally received a very nice unsolicited "review" of "Window Gods" from Australian poet and novellist Rhyll McMaster:

"So many things I like about 'Window Gods' - the tone, or rather Isobel's tone of voice which carries the reader right through; the sassy dialogue (hard to get dialogue right, in my opinion); Isobel's strength and perseverance; and, of course, I like Eli - I can see him. Isobel's travails with Stella are absorbing and reminiscent, and I recognise David far too well. I like Isobel saying that artists are the ones who embrace the nub and never give it up… It's a grand journey of a book, and I expect you will receive lots of salutations from happy readers. Oh, and that first line must go into the annals of great first lines - (I said that line once to a friend without realising it was her new boyfriend.)"

Sally appeared with Kate Evans on ABC Radio National's Books + at 2:15pm on Sunday 2 November. "…this complex, beautifully written book."
The interview was rebroadcast at 10:35am on Tuesday 4 November on ABC Radio National's Books and Arts Daily.
You can also download an audio file of the interview with Kate Evans directly from this site together with a transcript of the interview.

A review by Dianne Stubbings appeared in The Australian on Saturday 25 October.

And there was a short earlier review by Sonia Nair in Books and Publishing. Copy here

Judith Pugh v Sally Morrison

Shortly after the publication of "After Fire" in August 2009, Judith Pugh launched legal action against Sally Morrison and her publishers, Hardie Grant.

Sally is now able to state on the public record she has not defamed Judith, does not believe the book defamed Judith and the settlement reached with Judith Pugh was a commercial decision made by the publishers.
