I will read anything this woman writes forever more. She is Just. So. Good. Human, funny, insightful, super smart, a most original and perceptive writer.
— Charlotte Wood, author of The Natural Way of Things
Blown away by this intelligent and balanced journalist.
— Tim McCulloch, clinical anaesthetist and staff specialist, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital
To Anesthesia she brings lush gifts of description, a poetry of the body and mind.
— Michael Friedrich, LA Review of Books
