How to tell your father to drop dead -- reviews

How to tell your father to drop dead has been reviewed by Kerryn Goldsworthy in the Sydney Morning Herald (28 September 2013) and in the Melbourne Community Voice (20 November 2013, p. 22). Kerryn was kind enough to say that stories such as "On Rosa Luxemburgstrasse in a Vietnamese cafe" explore "the place where personal history and world history connect" and try "to negotiate some sort of personal truce or peace between the past and the present". The reviewer in Melbourne Community Voice gave the book four stars and says that I "write with a stark detachment to fill each phrase with meaning, as in the autobiographically styled 'Tusk' -- or move you to tears as in the collection's central story, 'Winter afternoon'."
The book is now available at more locations. Hares & Hyenas stock it in Melbourne, Books@Stones in Brisbane have it, and it is also available through the University Co-op Bookshop.
