Reviews

"Delightful. . . . A nimble and very funny collection of stories from a writer who clearly values the human condition in all its myriad forms."

--Kirkus Reviews


"VERDICT Solid and enjoyable reading for those who want well-crafted stories about everyday life."

--Library Journal

"The Mighty Currawongs . . . roams broadly in subject matter, but always offers joyful, whimsical wordplay and an abiding love for life's absurd and profound moments[Doyle's] gift for finding the sublime in even the small and dirty details is alive and gleaming in this short story collection."
