"Compelling and sensitively nuanced, 'Dark Jelly' is edgy, meaty and substantial, and very dark indeed."Louise O'Brien - NZ Listener
"Alice Tawhai's third short story collection is one to pack in the beach bag. Her perceptions of subcultures, assemblage of characters, downright quirkiness and deft style make her a significant contemporary voice in Māori writing."Mana magazine
