Indiscretionsi"my grandma, she loved diana:", Maxine Beneba Clarke , single work poetry
[Review] Packer & Sons, Steve Dow , single work review
— Review of Packer & Sons Tommy Murphy , 2019 single work drama ;
'Tommy Murphy’s Packer & Sons at Belvoir examines the inherited and inherent misbehaviour and barbarism of Australia’s best-known media dynasties.' 
Jayne Tuttle : Paris or Die, Linda Jaivin , single work review
— Review of Paris or Die : A Memoir Jayne Tuttle , 2019 single work autobiography ;

'Jayne Tuttle’s memoir, Paris or Die, is a literary suitcase packed with sparkling friendships, startling discoveries, mad love, intriguing challenges and hot sex. Quite a bit of hot sex, in fact. There’s also mortal danger and helpless loss, both of which signal their presence in the very first chapter. Tuttle, a writer, actor and charismatically charming first-time author, takes us on quite a journey. Her writing is pitch-perfect and pacy – very, very funny at times, and raw and affecting at others. With death and heartbreak as ever-present themes, Paris or Die is also deeply moving.' (Introduction)

Rebecca Starford (ed.) New Australian Fiction 2019, Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen , single work review
— Review of New Australian Fiction 2019 2019 anthology short story ;

'Within the pages of the first short-fiction collection from Australian literary journal Kill Your Darlings, we are transported to a series of engrossing micro-worlds. Editor Rebecca Starford writes in the introduction that “stories offer a way to explore the most urgent issues of our time”. Indeed, these 18 stories are tied to the concerns of 2019, from the everyday to the more abstract and unabashedly political.' (Introduction)

Emma Viskic Darkness for Light, Thuy On , single work review
— Review of Darkness for Light Emma Viskic , 2019 single work novel ;

'Emma Viskic blazed onto the literary crime fiction scene in 2015 with the private investigator Caleb Zelic. The character of Caleb has been deaf since a childhood bout of meningitis from which he never fully recovered. In many ways the author works within the chalk-marked outlines of crime fiction tropes – a dead body in the opening pages and the usual tortuous paths of sleuthing before truth and enlightenment – but Caleb’s deafness adds complexity, and at times an unexpected frisson, to the classic detective story.'
