'Some books read as if they are touched by magic, so wondrous and astonishing is the experience of immersing yourself in them. That's how I feel about The Wonder Lover. It is written with confidence and daring, with a joyous freedom and a love for story and language that is only possible when an artist has truly mastered their craft. It is a compulsive and thrilling read, a dazzling achievement. There is a word that should be used very rarely but I believe is absolutely right for this book: The Wonder Lover is superb.' - Christos Tsiolkas, author of Barracuda, Merciless Gods and The Slap
'a dazzling tour de force which I predict will earn international acclaim, a truly original story about a serial husband... and that's just the beginning of a playful, very modern satirical fable about men, marriage, desire, and the compartmentalised mind of a professional factoid concealing not just a double, but a triple life.' - Caroline Baum, Booktopia
