Praise for Cassandra Pybus' books:
"In this stylish, confronting and marvellously
written biography, scarifying precision and measured compassion are held
in delicate balance as Cassandra Pybus relentlessly anatomises the demons
that drove James McAuley through a lifetime of labyrinthine politics,
art and nightmare."
"A most beguiling book," Marion Halligan on Till Apples Grow On An Orange Tree
"A spellbinding literary and historical work," Wayne Grady in the Toronto Globe and Mail on White Rajah
"You finish reading Cassandra Pybus's White
Rajah, with the satisfied feeling of having viewed a fine BBC drama
series one of those enthralling Victorian and Edwardian sagas that the
top end of television still does best...it has a brave and wonderful sweep
that is more than historic -- it is sensual, sensitive and humane."
" ...a fine example of why history is relevant
and, indeed, essential for the moral evolution of civilization,"
"Without eschewing proper historical and
scholarly procedures, it is history as narrative...of a kind we tend to
associate with fiction,"
"...meticulously researched and written with
Cassandra Pybus is represented in North America
by Bella Pomer Agency and in the UK by Carol Blake of Blake Friedman.
