    1. I bought Sunnyside by Joanna Murray-Smith ages ago, when she gave an author talk at my local library, and now I’m feeling rather a fool for having left it so long to read it. It reminds me that there are some real treasures on my groaning TBR shelf – about 600 books at last count – but I keep adding to it for fear that if I don’t buy a book when I see it, it may vanish off the booksellers shelves because they are so merciless about ditching literary fiction, no matter how good it is.If y [...]

    2. I read Joanna Murray-Smith’s novel, Sunnyside, while sitting on the beach. Basically, it’s the perfect beach read for a Mornington Peninsula holiday because fictional Sunnyside is a thinly disguised Mt Eliza and scungy Deptford is Frankston.Anyway, I digress. It’s the story of Alice and Harry Haskins, their children, their flash house, their neighbours, their dinner parties and their friend Molly’s fling with the pool-man.It doesn’t get much deeper than a bowl of smoked salmon dip, whi [...]

    3. I really struggled to get through this book. It was given to me at a flea market as the seller couldn't sell it. I should not have accepted but once I'd felt the cover I had to read it. It didn't seem to move forward until after page 160 and even then it regressed so many times that I became outright bored with it. I trudged on until the end because I hate not finishing books. I seriously should not have bothered. I just could never get into this read. I'm sorry to the author and her supporters [...]

    4. I really love Joanna Murray smith's plays and was pleased to have this book recommended to me. At times this book is quite depressing and a bit uncomfortable. There were some excellent insights into the way we love our lives and the things one finds important and I felt as though I reassessed some of my ambitions, of only slightly. The reason this book gets four stars is that I felt like it ended really abruptly.
