Whispering Gums reviewed Bite Your Tongue for the 2012 Challenge Australian Women Writers 2012 Reading and Reviewing Challenge.
‘There are universals about love and forgiveness (real and wished for) between parents and children. And, there is love for books (in all their glory!)…. A spirited book is a good way to describe it.’
And comments too:
‘Great review. Makes me want to read it.’
‘What an interesting sounding book! The structure is particularly interesting with the real memoir inserted as chapters into the story.’
‘It’s a wonderful book: so brave, and poetic, a tough story, but full of heart.’
