Praise

A female Cormac McCarthy*

“This extraordinary novel—propelled by the dark, rich talents of a truly brilliant writer—dazzles, staggers and amazes.” —Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love

“[A] page-turner… Jessie, the heroine of this tale set in 1920s Australia, sets her own compass. A horse thief and sometime circus performer, she’s being pursued through the hills by her Aboriginal lover and a police sergeant. The chase will leave you breathless.” —Good Housekeeping

“Collins’s gripping debut novel is based on a legendary wild woman . . . A fast-paced, heart-wrenching story that never loses speed, this extraordinary first novel is not to be missed.” —Library Journal (starred review)

“The dead have tales to tell, if only we could hear them… Collins richly evokes a heartbreaking emotional terrain, setting it against the sparse, brutal landscape of the Australian Outback.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A captivating, epic novel that never loses its heart to scope, The Untold is a surreal saga set in a rugged, unforgiving landscape. Courtney Collins paints a devastating portrait of long-shot love.” —Patrick DeWitt, author of the #1 International bestseller, The Sisters Brothers (short-listed for The Man Booker Prize)

A female Cormac McCarthy? Get it.” —Library Journal
