  • A masterpiece which everybody should read...It deserves to become a classic

    Auberon Waugh
  • No lunacy too weird, no irony too oblique, heart too tender, mischief too black, to dodge the sharp angle of his eye. He slips from the hilarious to the macabre, he celebrates the comedy and plumbs the tragedy of Francisco's life - and of Africa - in prose that grabs you with its precision

  • Outstanding, finely written

  • It is hard to know how posterity will regard this remarkable writer, but his terse, honed language was built to last

    Colin Thubron, Sunday Times
  • Magnificent. The beautiful, succinct prose is so incredibly visual, vibrant and visceral

    Bernardine Evaristo, Independent
