Editorial Review

"It's a beautiful, unsentimental and complicated depiction of life with a new baby, all the awful bound up with a pummelling love that is often more pummel than love." - Pickle Me This

"Whether discussing her libido, which may be lost under the laundry, or how the sea stripped even the rings from her sister's fingers, The Mongoose Diaries is a courageous, funny and captivating work." - Lesley's Book Nook

"As is crucial to the life-writing that seeks to win the trust of its audience, Noteboom's account balances self-confidence with self-doubt, and joys alongside disappointments." - Prairie Fire
