'Compelling ... a pacey read that is painful but finally hopeful and very moving.' * Books + Publishing * 'Well-crafted ... stark ... absorbing.' * The Sun Herald * 'Savvy, funny and compelling ... Bearman creates real characters deftly and economically ... I can't wait to see the film.' * Australian Book Review * 'Savvy, funny and compelling ... Bearman creates real characters deftly and economically ... I can't wait to see the film.' Australian Book Review 'Well-crafted ... stark ... absorbing.'The Sun-Herald 'Compelling ... a pacey read that is painful but finally hopeful and very moving.' Bookseller + Publisher 'A compelling and laceratingly authentic journey into the cowardice and narcissism at the heart of a suburban Australian family. What is art? What's true courage? I could not put it down.' Melissa Ashley, bestselling author of The Birdman's Wife and The Bee and the Orange Tree 'Margaret Bearman's intimate, unsettling novel of family dysfunction perfectly captures the ambivalent passions of girlhood while offering an incisive critique of the cult of artistic genius. Sharp and subtle at the same time, refusing any easy certainties, We Were Never Friends is a haunting portrait of the human capacity for cruelty and love in equal measure.' bestselling author Kirsten Tranter
