| 28 | a novel | twenty-eight years in the making |surprising and eloquent | a mirror maze | emotional intensity | original, courageous, and memorable | 28 is very powerful and intense, questioning again and again all the ambivalences of life and living, of destiny, motivation, and consequence. To tackle such themes is a very ambitious undertaking, and it is successful because of the narrative element, the character hints, and the human elements. The ending is both surprising and eloquent. - Thomas Shapcott, Order of Australia for contribution to literature and the Arts, Patrick White Award. 28 is an original, courageous, and memorable novel. It engages the reader in an important debate, and leads us to ask ourselves challenging questions. At the same time it 'entertains' us with a story of relationships- both painful and hopeful-and allows us to observe (and perhaps experience) growth. - Jack Hodgins - Lieutenant Governor's Award for Literary Excellence, Terasen Lifetime Achievement Award for an outstanding literary career As I look back over the novel, it is the character of 28 that stands out. There is real emotional (and even spiritual) intensity in her, and one has a sense that her life goes on even beyond the last chapter. - J.M. Coetzee - Nobel Prize for literature, twice Man Booker Prize recipient
