  • Nelio's story is unfurled with pace and drama... Mankell writes eloquently of the realities of poverty and violence without becoming sugary or expert craftsman

  • This is a deeply affecting read, one of those rare novels whose taste lingers for days afterwards

    Barry Didcock, Sunday Herald
  • An elegant story about storytelling
