Product description

Review

For 'Star Things' Almost ethereal in its strangeness and has great energy at its heart.--Brendan O'Keefe "Literary Review "

Elizabeth Baines has a wry humour and satirical edge.--Martin Nicholls "City Life "

About The Birth Machine An increasingly powerful narrative ... its presentation of the world of childhood contrasts nicely with a sharp satire.--Laura Marcus "Times Literary Supplement "

About The Birth Machine This powerful book leaves you with a sense of disquiet, anger and frustration [and] the realisation ... that what you have just read is an everyday story about an everyday event. As such it is very clever.--Jessica Corner "Everywoman "

About The Birth Machine: A gripping story, a pithy book.--Katie Campbell "City Limits "
