‘There’s a kind of cultivated lunacy in her writing that artfully makes the most of the ridiculous, striking a clever balance between the familiar and the loopy…a very funny compendium of personal tales delivered in a voice that impresses with its sincere originality.’ – sydney morning herald
‘Norton Lodge has made me laugh until I had tears streaming down my face…This book proves that while Norton Lodge is a brilliant, animated performer, she’s just as funny on the page.’ – readings monthly
‘This is the kind of book that will have you accidentally spitting at strangers on the train as you force-cry with laughter…A riot from start to finish, Norton Lodge’s genius demands to be devoured whole.’ – the new daily
‘…an Australian writer with a gift for rendering suburban psychos and grotesques…Almost Sincerely recalls John Birmingham’s He Died with a Falafel in His Hand and even, in the same tradition, the film Muriel’s Wedding…’ – the saturday paper
