Anita Heiss creates the genre of Koori chick lit in Not Meeting Mr Right.
Susan Wyndham, â??This Yearâ??s Best Booksâ?? in Sydney Morning Herald
Anita Heiss is a fresh and bold new Australian voice in the genre of chick lit. So get comfy, grab a copy of Not Meeting Mr Right and prepare to be entertained and delighted by gorgeous Alice on her quest for true luuurve!
There's lots of social commentary, hands-on sex, and brilliant satire here, heaps of black/white politics and revisionist history, and most impressive of all there's the most vivid, three-dimensional account ever written in any language of a truly serious hangover.
Through its wit, charm and cheekiness, this novel is ... going to be dubbed the blackfella version of Bridget Jones Diary, with one difference, this one comes with a spear.
Terri Janke, author Butterfly Song
.. An entertaining and often very funny, Bridget Jones-ish romp.

Anita is Aboriginal Australia's answer to Whoopi Goldberg.
Great witty entertainment here, from a clever young Aussie author. More please.
