Snake Ropes has been reviewed on the Books and Gin website: booksandgin.wordpress.com/
“There’s no question that Snake Ropes is a fantastic piece of writing in my mind. I would compare it thematically with the work of Angela Carter, but, I should point out, with the nuances of an extra couple of decades of feminist writing, thought, and literature to give it a boot into the twenty-first century.
Richards has deftly woven huge ethical questions about society, community, sense of place and the tricksy nature of memory and storytelling into a milieu of half-remembered myths and folktales. It’s gorgeous and shudderingly uncomfortable at the same time: a remarkable thing.”
