This is a powerful novel on every level. The writing is stunning, capturing the wild nature of Australia’s north. The politics of native title, of white versus Indigenous culture, and of corporate might against the call of country are all thoughtfully explored.” – Melinda Woledge.

 “Translated from German by Charlotte Collins and Ruth Martin, Nino Haratischivili’s dense, detailed prose has an almost conversational fluidity that lends a deceptive – and disarming – simplicity to its complex plot, condemning the reader to long hours that absorbed in the vicissitudes of its characters.” – Maureen Eppen

The writing is witty and full of interesting factual content. Despite this, you are not bogged down by any unnecessary content. A must read for anyone dependent on their Google Home or any other personal assistant, Qualityland is a brilliant satire which at times seems so funny and yet so chilling.” – Teresa Lewis

Gilmour expertly emulates the intensity of his work by careening from one scene to another without a second in between. One moment he’s telling an elderly woman that, no, he can’t go grocery shopping for her. The next moment he and his colleague are cornered by a machete-wielding domestic abuser threatening to kill them. At the end of each chapter you feel exhausted, matching the intense mental state that Gilmour and his colleagues enter as the summer goes on.” – Max Lewis
