Read the review by Elizabeth Flux for Books+Publishing.

A layered, richly textured collection that displays a virtuosic sense of character and voice. Giacometti leverages language and the short story form brilliantly to offer a deeply rendered evocation of humanity and its connection to the world.
– MICHAEL SALA, winner of NSW Premiers Literary Award for New Writing 2013 for The Last Thread

Michael Giacometti’s stories experiment at the boundaries of identity and history. His curiosities and subversions are spiritual and richly lyrical.
– MICHELLE CAHILL, winner of NSW Premiers Literary Award for New Writing 2017 for Letter to Pessoa
