“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

Say "gidday cobber" to Corey-Trevor the tortoise.  Yangarra cellar sales manager Genevieve Molloy raised him up from a tiny lad the size of a 20 cent piece. Seven years later, she decided it was time that Corey-Trevor had a chance at the wild life, and the search for a girlfriend, so she brought him to work and let him go in the home dam.  He made a serious tortoise-speed charge at that big water!
