'Paul Callan is marvellous at old-fashioned storytelling.'
Author and Literary Critic
'It's two thumbs up for Callan's The Dulang Washer, his first novel and hopefully not his last! It is a must-read ... [it] is steeped in tradition with hints of modernity. It is this skiful combination of the two facets which sets the book apart from other novels of its kind.'
'Callan's in-depth research into the customs of the locals and his vivid descriptions transport the reader into the thick of things easily and once drawn into the story, it's hard to put the book down. ... [It] is definitely a page-turner.'
The Sun Daily
'Callan successfully calls to mind vivid images of tin mines in the late 19th century ... allowing one to truly dive into the minds and emotions of the characters and understand the conflicts and situations they faced.'
'The Dulang Washer kept me engrossed for seven hours straight.'
