Praise for Midnight Blue and Endlessly Tall by Jane Jervis-Read

‘Jane Jervis-Read’s beautiful little book … kicks above its weight … and shows the power of leaving things unsaid.’ Cate Kennedy

Midnight Blue and Endlessly Tall impressed me with the boldness, raw sensuality and complex tenderness with which it confronts love and madness.’ Fiona Wright, The Australian

‘At any one time, I have a stack of books awaiting reading on my bedside table, and sometimes, a book will sneak itself to the top of the pile. This beautifully written novella by relative newcomer Jervis-Read is one of them. The book’s real power lies in the author’s exploration of themes such as ageing and desirability, heartbreak, family drama and mental health issues … a great taster from this talented writer.’ Rachel Smith,
