    Review quote
    "Gerald Dawe is an explorer, like Darwin and Humboldt, sailing way beyond the boundaries of his own Belfast identity in order to chart the minutiae and the ordinary design of far-flung terrain." - Hugo Hamilton, author of Speckled People and The Harbor Boys "Dawe is one of those critics no society can afford to be without... whose aims are essentially earthed in political decency and in the shaping power of imagination." - Sean Dunne, The Irish Times "Gerald Dawe shows himself amicably opinionated, vigilant, resourceful and straightforward and can claim a good deal of affinity with Louis MacNeice's 'Individualist,' escaping with his dog on the other side of the fair." - Patricia Craig, Times Literary Supplement"
