Comment on Writing the stories of trouble by Lizzie Gilliam.

Haven’t stopped reading your book since I bought it yesterday in Darwin. The people, the landscape, the way you describe what I now feel is my home town, all resonates. I find it too painful to read at times and have to put it down and go and do something else, but I’m drawn back. You write so well, thank you.
