It's almost a year since I worked on the illustrations for First fox, the debut fiction collection by Auckland writer Leanne Radojkovich, so it was a smashing surprise today to see Iona Winter has reviewed it in Landfall:
"Radojkovich shows us things that are not often spoken of aloud, and I
admire the way she illuminates the social, cultural and political in First Fox [...]"
"Stunning black and white illustrations by Rachel J. Fenton support the writing and lend another dimension to the tales."
It's a grand review, not least because it's so unusual for a reviewer to read* the illos with the text - but the benefits of doing so are clear from Iona's review. Many thanks to her, and to Landfall.
