Review: Come in Spinner

User Review  - Fiona - Goodreads

Great novel set in WW2 Sydney. Fragmented narrative that cuts between characters, giving a view of several social strata. Great insights into the time and place. Unlike most books, even now, the novel places the women as central and significant. Read full review
