'Feet to the Stars, Susan Midalia’s third collection of short stories, offers keenly observed details about everyday life expressed with pathos, tenderness and bracing wit.
'Subtly rendered and emotionally engaging, these stories speak of the transformative capacities of the heart and mind, and of the ways we affect each other, sometimes unwittingly and often profoundly. They offer us the pleasure of listening to different voices, and the satisfaction of careful crafting and evocative prose.' (Publication Summary)Crawley : UWA Publishing , 2015 pg. 20-27
