Beautifully crafted, and as tender as they are confronting, these elegiac stories examine the darkness and frailty of ordinary people and celebrate the moments when the light shines through. €ŒAs a collection of short stories [The Turning] is magnificent, but it also transcends its form and makes a breathtakingly beautiful and challenging novel.€¥ €" Australian Bookseller & Publisher €ŒPlot and prose combine to create what might just come close to being the perfect Australian novel.€¥ €" Herald Sun
