'A caster of spells.' -- Australian Book Review 'Hugely impressive.' -- Guardian 'Remarkable.' -- Age 'A weird and wonderful writer.' -- Australian 'Melancholy, singular, exhilarating.' -- Delia Falconer 'Rothwell's writing resists easy description. He roams the borderlands between memoir and fiction and insinuates himself into gaps between time and place...His prose is lush and often beautiful.' -- Weekend Australian on Belomor 'Outstanding...Romantic, dramatic, intelligent, cultured, enigmatic, cinematic...Rothwell walks alongside W. G. Sebald, Bruce Chatwin and Teju Cole...[Red Heaven] made me feel alive as I read.' * Australian * 'Red Heaven is the account, rendered on a grand scale by the most exquisite and enigmatic figure in contemporary Australian literature, of how one boy grew out of his tangled inheritance and found his own.' * Saturday Paper *
