Praise for Black Dust Dancing:
'Tracy Crisp's spare and compelling prose creates a myopic, suffocating industrial-town community ... in a universal yet vividly local story of duty versus family.' - Cath Keneally

'You would never know from reading Black Dust Dancing that Tracy Crisp is a stand-up comedian. She tackles a black subject with sensitivity and respect, making it clear that there are no pat answers and that we each are ultimately responsible for making our own way in the world.' - Ian Lipke, M/C Reviews
