The Wall Street Journal named her as one of their ‘artists to watch.’ Her second book, Only the Animals, won the inaugural 2014 Readings New Australian Writing Award.

Her new novel, In the Garden of the Fugitives, was published in 2018, and her short non-fiction book, Writers on Writers: On J.M. Coetzee has recently been published as part of Black Inc.'s Writers on Writers series.
