Praise for On Shirley Hazzard

“Michelle de Kretser’s On Shirley Hazzard is my favourite kind of criticism: granular, expansive, stringent, confessional, beautifully written. Reading a brilliant, essential forebear, de Kretser meditates on the way literature, even as it discomfits us, can make us feel more at home in the world and in ourselves. This is a moving work of rigorous and loving homage.” —Garth Greenwell, author of What Belongs to You

“A moving examination of Shirley Hazzard’s work … A powerful tribute – a reader’s book, a writer’s book. This is literary criticism as it should be written, with clear-eyed love for the literature.” —Peter Orner, author of Am I Alone Here? and Maggie Brown & Others
