Critical Praise

Herald " The brief scenes, often seemingly random and catching the absolute rub of the quotidian, possess what feels like a holographic shimmer. . . . Snake is clearly the work of a powerful imagination. American readers will feel themselves fortunate to make the acquaintance of a writer like Kate Jennings. "

Carol Shields, New York Times

Book Review

" As spare and compelling as the landscape of Jennings's native Australia. "

Jill Ker Conway

Times Book Review " Immensely readable . . . A novel that simmers with energy, passion, and thoroughly unresolved tensions. "

Debra Adelaide, Sydney Morning

"Irresistibly good. "

Shirley Hazzard
