The Bell Collection: Beautiful Ugly Words by Jessica Bell
"Jessica Bell is a force to be reckoned with in contemporary fiction ... Dysfunctional families, introspective protagonists, secrets, lies, tragedy and historical baggage crop up in several but the key issue here is the voice. The settings of Greece and Australia, the varied perspectives of all ages, the rich layers of storyworld and characters you care about so much you want to reach in there and hold/shake/strangle them. An exceptional writer who adds more than literary skill to her work. There's an artistic and musical angle in her work, which adds its own aesthetic. She deals with a child's reverie and a drunk's rant with equal authenticity and gets right under your skin ... This is a writer who is going to attract a passionate fan club."
