On Robyn Davidson

Praise for On Robyn Davidson

‘Rich with insights into Davidson’s unique sensibility, this is literary criticism at its best.’ —PICK OF THE WEEK, The Sydney Morning Herald

‘Cooke [is] an intelligent and forceful writer’ —Sophie Cunningham, Australian Book Review

‘Richard Cooke’s small and exquisite hardback [is] quizzical and evocative of both the power of the essayist’s gaze and the arresting face he’s looking into.’ —Peter Craven, The Weekend Australian

‘Cooke has tasked himself with the difficult job of pinning down someone who refuses easy classification, and he deftly explores what it means that Davidson associates writing with a loss of freedom.’ —The Saturday Paper
