Review

Win is an intriguing woman who draws you in with her obvious intelligence and incredible tolerance towards her stifling family. Meanwhile old friends and foes from Win's past pop up with curious regularity, mysteriously seeming as bewildering to Win as they are to the reader. Is it all a conspiracy? Or is no one quite who they seem to be? Win knows it will be better if only she can make a plan to get back to Taiwan and can get to bed at 11:30pm, on her own, or not ... -- Lesley Cocker * Goodreads * Marie Gameson's debut solo novel is highly successful at questioning the nuances of identity fluidity and reality, of life and death. -- Bookdragon Sean * Goodreads * This clever, contemporary novel is an exploration of current (and retrospective) social themes and of self-knowledge (and the lack of it) seen from through the kaleidoscope eyes of a perversely appealing heroine. -- Bryan Smart * Goodreads * Immensely satisfying ... her expertise as a storyteller makes The Giddy Career of Mr Gadd (deceased) an extremely worthwhile read. -- Anne Goodwin * Annecdotal *
