Reviews - What do customers think about Wild Women?
Fiction at its Finest Mar 22, 2007
A racy account of an Australian couple's move to Canada written with wit and panache, Wild Women is a barnburner of a book. Leigh is a brilliant, incisive writer whose visceral prose can move you from laughter to tears and back again. Highly recommended!
First reader Apr 9, 2005
PAUL QUARRINGTON called it:
"A well-written, witty, ribald and rollicking journey into the dark ways of men and women."
PODGirl (USA) wrote: "Leigh is a master of voice and this book should be required reading in creative writing classes."
(The new UKA edition costs less and has a contest for anyone who'd like literary immortality for the cost of an email.)
