Praise for Inexperience:

So far, no doubt constrained by how the market would have us judge the value of fiction, the fact that Anthony Macris is one of the most important novelists currently writing in Australia has not been fully recognized. It is something we need to try and understand.

Macris’ insights on those sad, isolated moments of intimacy, the fraught dialogue of avoidance and the horrors of viewing the subtle mastery of El Greco in less than ideal conditions are to be savoured.
