"There is something so assured and flawless in the delivery of the writing voice that is almost like acid on the skin." Tara June Winch, co-judge of the Jann Medlicott Acorn Prize for Fiction 2020
"This is a real punch-in-the-guts kind of novel but while it deals with themes of domestic violence, gang culture, grief and fractured families and, is at times, a heartbreaking read; it is also a beautifully pitched and nuanced hopeful story about the power of love, friendship and family … I think everybody should read Auē. It’s a book that people will still be talking about in decades to come." Kiran Dass, NZ Herald
