Kicking goals

I was rapt with the review of Behind the Night Bazaar which appeared in the A2 section (p.22) of The Age last Saturday 1 July 2006. Click here to read it while it’s still online. I love the footy metaphor!

Also, let me assure my readers that Behind the Night Bazaar is a work of fiction, not autobiography as several of my friends and family members have surmised in relation to the following quote from the review: “Keeney emerges as an appealing character, emotional yet capable of cold-eyed action. She smokes too much, speaks Thai fluently and likes a drink and a shag. She has a well-developed moral compass.” For one thing, I do NOT speak fluent Thai!
