Inkerman & Blunt, a small outfit in Melbourne, is to be congratulated if for nothing else than on the sheer scope of this endeavour. It is wonderful to see a publisher anywhere in the world committed to expanding the possibilities of a literary genre.—Simon Caterson, The Australian.
You can’t write better than this. It’s simply perfect.
—Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic and Eat, Pray, Love
This floored me. The format is a game changer and the linked novellas combine to create the best book I’ve read in 12 years, since David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas. Earls has never had his due but if this doesn’t get incredible press from here to Timbuktu, then publishing truly is broken. Or maybe he just fixed it, because Wisdom Tree is a transcendent wonder.—Chris Flynn, A Tiger in Eden and The Glass Kingdom
