“A brave and honest book, perhaps the finest writing to come out of the catastrophic 2009 Victorian bushfires … Cleverly structured with dual narratives, this is a quiet revelation: a great literary contribution, both personal and analytical, to the works on fire in Australia.” -Judge’s Report, Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards
