    'This diverse biographical and critical material included in a single volume gives a fascinating insight into this writer – a Greek from Romania – who has been living in Sydney since 1960 and has made Australia her home. Prominent literary critics contributing to this volume include Sneja Gunew, Ivor Indyk, Judith Brett, Nikos Papastergiadis, Judith Rodriguez, Dmetri Kakmi, Anna Couani, Paul Kane, Gail Holst-Warhaft and many others from Australia and elsewhere in the world. There is also a section on translation of her works into four European languages, reflecting Kefala’s origins. ' (Publication summary)

Ivor Indyk points to the shortcomings of recent criticism of Kefala's Sydney Journals and concludes: 'The consolation one offers oneself, when confronted with the patronising criticism of Kefala and, more frequently in the recent past, the outright exclusion of her writing, is to hope that time will bring the recognition she deserves.'
