All Reviews - The Ballad of Siddy Church
Write a review.

The Ballad of Siddy Church is strong stuff: raw moonshine with a kick to it.’ 

David Eggleton, The Listener (NZ)

Praise be to writer Lin Van Hek, who held the narrative with a strong hand and a lethal eye. The thread is never lost, the movements complete, the skill of a writer who packaged the events of life into poetry.’

Glenn Robbins, Pandora

‘There is a touch of the magic realists in Van Hek’s exuberant use of imagery, a feeling of life itself as both miracle and mystery.’

Lesley Beasley, Canberra Times

‘A tale told in the most beautiful teasing prose. [Also] one of the funniest and wickedest books around.’

Tarek Bazley, Critic, NZ

‘This is a riveting story, complex and wonderful to read.’
