'Raises a lot of issues that are worth reflecting on.' * Mamamia on Speak to Me * 'This book can be read as a damning indictment of the social welfare and criminal justice systems.' * The Age on The Crimes of Billy Fish * `Sarah Hopkins proves herself among the leading chroniclers of contemporary Australian life.' * Sydney Morning Herald on This Picture of You * `Deeply human and utterly humane, The Subjects explores the utopian madness of social engineering in a way that reminded me of Charlotte Wood's The Natural Way of Things' * Malcolm Knox * `The Subjects is energetic and compelling from the opening pages. And in Daniel we find a voice that I was worried was disappearing from Australian fiction: unpretentious, smart and lacking in all mawkishness. It's a joy to hear him, and it is a joy to read a book of such complex ideas that is also alert to the art of storytelling.' * Christos Tsiolkas *
