What the critics are saying about The Pale Surface of Things:
“Janey Bennett makes a startlingly fine debut as a novelist with THE PALE SURFACE OF THINGS. …. Bennett creates a propulsive novel that is a most satisfying read on many levels.
“Crete, in so many ways, is the main character in the novel, and Bennett knows her way around her stage as well as anyone who writes. THE PALE SURFACE OF THINGS is a solid, intoxicating novel that gently reminds the reader of the importance of philosophical issues and the way they mold lives. It is a smart, entertaining, superb novel!”
