“It confidently embraces a fractured narrative that ranges across time and between two countries without ever being confusing or obfuscating... Wish You Were Here is deeply excellent on every level it chooses to operate.” CJ Johnson ABC Radio
“It is tightly plotted with a scary denouement that nails its point about the deadliness of rogue circumstance in a very satisfying way.” Sandrra Hall Sydney Morning Herald
“This is an impressive debut from Darcy-Smith and for producer Angie Fielder.” Margaret Pomeranz
