1 [Review Essay]: The Hope Fault Sonia Nair , 2017 single work review essay
— Appears in: Australian Book Review , September no. 394 2017; (p. 53)

'The minutiae and messiness of family life as it comes together and unravels time and time again are delicately rendered in Tracy Farr’s second novel, The Hope Fault. The unrelenting rain that forms the lugubrious backdrop for much of the novel conjures up the same rich, atmospheric setting of the late Georgia Blain’s Between a Wolf and a Dog (2016), and suffuses the story with a sense of foreboding.'
