Praise for Muck

‘Craig Sherborne’s daring, innovative prose is as exhilarating as his disciplined mastery of it is humbling. In service to an unnervingly sharp intelligence, it enlivens us to the comedy, the pathos, the dignity and the pain of life, as his characters live it. Muck is a masterpiece.’ —Raimond Gaita

‘Excellent – it disturbs me to admit that Craig Sherborne goes deeper than the rest of us into the territory of impressionable immaturity. He writes beautifully, especially when the material is not beautiful at all. He can make the cruel truth poetic.’ —Clive James

‘Mordantly true to life … One of the most interesting autobiographical projects on the go’ —J.M. Coetzee


‘A work of searing originality and part of an ongoing masterpiece’ —Peter Craven, the Monthly
