Author's note to 2nd edition   (2010-04-25)
Author’s note: Revisiting the work before its release in North America I did consider writing a shorter version. However upon reflection I decided a simplified version would be unlikely to capture the sense of authenticity the novel has in its current form. Therefore any revisions only serve to enhance the existing text.
Praise for Cardboard:
“. . . an extreme experience of fragmentation . . . The central character's gains in self-perception become the reader's gains also. Her courage is contagious. I can highly recommend it.”
Stephanie Dowrick, “Inner Life” columnist for the Good Weekend Magazine
“An intellectual and psychological tour de force.”
Liz Ferrier, Advisory Editor, m/c - a journal of media and culture
“One of the best novels ever to be published in Australia.”
Amanda Lohrey, novelist
