Anthony Macris Observes Lonely Crowds in Inexperience and Other Stories, Andrew Rlemer , 2016 single work review
— Review of Inexperience and Other Stories Anthony Macris 2016 selected work short story ;
'The Sydney-based writer Anthony Macris has a modest body of published works: two novels, some shorter pieces and a memoir centred on his family's experience of autism. Not surprisingly, therefore, he is not as well-known outside literary circles as he should be. There is, nevertheless, another reason why his is not a household name among readers of recent fiction. His novels and short stories do not fit the mould of what constitutes these days marketable "products".

Jane Eyre Moves to Van Diemen's Land in Jennifer Livett's Wild Island, Louise Swinn , 2016 single work review
— Review of Wild Island Jennifer Livett 2016 single work novel ;
'Mixing real history with classic fiction, Wild Island imagines Jane Eyre and Rochester making their long passage to Van Diemen's Land. It is the 1830s – dramatic times. Lives were short, and in a brief space of time, everything could be lost: fortunes, husbands, health, entire families, or, as Jane Eyre's Bertha Mason experienced, the mind. ...'
