What readers are saying


Don't be fooled by the title, The Tango is more than just a floorshow. Mr Hopwood's book takes us on a enticing journey of hope, rejection and life in the Australian country. Read it and rejoice.

Managing Editor, Fairfax Media, Monaro

I just started rereading Tango and I'm instantly drawn in. Cain paints the small town culture and characters vividly, with economy and humour. A great read.

I am occasionally active on twitter. Handy for finding out what the snow's like when I'm on the slopes.
