'In many such ways, then "difference about Darwin" coheres into an atmosphere which makes it hard for people to leave when they have settled into the Darwin way of life ... and which often draws them back again if they do go away from the city.  This atmosphere is brilliantly interpreted by Ainslie Roberts' lively and sensitive sketches, which show something of Darwin as it used to be as well as Darwin as it is today.'
