  • Superior novel...wincingly precise in his imagery and technically adept... An electric and darkly gleeful read

    Daily Mail
  • An immensely clever, tragicomic novel...a rich meditation on past and present colonial politics... What resonates for me is what I greatly admire in all Thorpe's work: the complex depth, and the texture and poetry of his storytelling language

    Financial Times
  • An intimate depiction of family life... Vivid and luminous

    Independent on Sunday
  • Because this is Adam Thorpe, there are only two things you know for certain: that the writing will be gorgeous, silky-smooth; and that the plot will be entirely original, defying categorisation...enjoy

    Sunday Telegraph
  • An intricate fiction which reminds us gently that war wrecks lives in ways too tangled to anticipate
