“Ross has already built a remarkable body of work...His work is irresistible, accessible, powerful and sensitive, and Rufus Marigold is the highlight.”
-Dylan Horrocks, Hicksville, The Magic Pen
"Rufus Marigold feels all at once like a distillation of the best Netflix comedy special, the funniest Flight of the Conchords song, the continuation of John Clarke’s deep understanding of the Kiwi psyche and a spiritual/philosophical text; a guide book then for these curious, confusing, wonderful and heartbreaking times."
-Simon Sweetman, Off the Tracks
“For sufferers, this book will bring awareness and understanding – a necessary first step to facing anxiety, getting understanding and support and finding ways out. Without this sufferers are very vulnerable.”
