Zable elevates history into near mythical tales of wonder.’
Australian

This is a man who truly believes in the power of stories.’
Age

I can think of no other writer who describes the aching heart of humanity with as much wisdom and compassion as Arnold Zable. The Watermill brings gentle light to some dark places. Whatever ails the human race, Zable is surely part of the solution.’
Michael McGirr
