- Colin Greenland in The Guardian called the stories "remarkable, luminous, mysterious", and concluded that "In Lanagan's hands the implications of words and phrases, the meanings folded into them, balloon out into landscapes as complex and interrelated and hence indeterminate as life itself: life in Indonesia or New South Wales, the past or the future or anywhere."
