Reviews

'Brutal and beautiful-I couldn't stop reading it. Jennifer Down is a brilliant writer.' * Victoria Hannan * 'Mesmerising, uncompromising and extraordinary. A whole life is in these pages.' * Robbie Arnott * 'Fierce and compelling. Down's compassion for her character, her refusal to look away from intolerable suffering, is a lesson for us all. A novel with immense dignity and heart.' * Carrie Tiffany * 'Jennifer Down is going to be a major part of the future of Australian literature. The quality of her writing, as well as her ability to tap into the loves, fears and anxieties many of us experience guarantee this.' * Readings Monthly * 'Pulse Points consolidates [Down's] reputation as a remarkable young writer. Her stories are effortlessly global yet strongly anchored in place. They testify to Down's remarkable powers of observation and her ability to create bleak but engaging worlds.' * Michelle de Kretser, Australian Book Review * 'This is a finely crafted collection that reminds us how sad and beautiful it is simply to be alive...The emotional depth of [Down's] writing displays a gift that will no doubt continue to unfold as her body of work grows.' * Saturday Paper on Pulse Points * 'These stories are studies in concision and with their strong social justice message they function like shocks. Though they are often about the disempowered, they ripple out with a seismic intensity, hinting at just how far this dazzling young writer might go.' * Australian on Pulse Points * 'Jennifer Down is a subtly extraordinary writer, and Pulse Points is one of the best Australian literary offerings we'll see this year.' * Good Reading * 'All the rapture and calamity of youth. Jennifer Down is a writer of rare insight and heart.' * Carrie Tiffany on Our Magic Hour * An impressive and emotionally sophisticated novel.' * Australian Book Review on Our Magic Hour * 'Down has an impressive feel for the drama of the ordinary.' * Sydney Morning Herald on Our Magic Hour * 'Down's evocation of Audrey's grief is astute, perceptive and always convincing...It's compelling writing.' * Australian on Our Magic Hour * 'A gritty, evocative story...Unconventional and intimate, Our Magic Hour is a must-read.' * Canberra Weekly on Our Magic Hour * 'Bodies of Light is Jennifer Down's third book and her best yet...A brilliant, sharply observed and deeply affecting epic that secures Down's status as one of the best writers in Australia today.' * Books+Publishing *
