All Reviews - The Floating Garden
Write a review.

Finely crafted, The Floating Garden is at once an elegy for the forgotten and a subversive counter-history to the tumult of rapid progress.
Sydney Morning Herald
The Floating Garden is a beautifully written, gently humorous and highly detailed slice of history. It also has an absorbing story-line which kept me turning the page.
Lisa Walker
This novel is driven by character rather than plot. I like people and so I enjoy these kinds of books, but what I enjoyed even more was the evocation of 1920s Sydney and the wealth of sensory description – not just visual details, but touch and smell as well...
Jessica White
The Floating Garden is a fine example how fiction can be useful in expanding our understanding of the past ... I enthusiastically recommend this book to other readers, especially those who care about Sydney, and those interested in a new type of historical fiction.

It's impressive that these disparate narratives come together so naturally to enrich each other. What a wonderful book.
