Carolynne Skinner, an Australian-based publisher and arts promoter, in writing about this book states: In compiling The Wayzgoose Affair, Jadwiga Jarvis has used excerpts from her correspondence with friends, colleagues, supporters and, occasionally, detractors, to weave a story both instructive and amusing. She records the setbacks, successes, irritations, and even disasters with a wicked wit and an often sharp and critical tone. No holds are barred. She begins with the setting up of the press, its search for a permanent home, and more-or-less chronologically descries the technical challenges, frustrations and pleasures of each project, complete with illustrations.
