Reviews

  • A novel of quiet pleasures, with a perplexed hero who always rings true.

    Mail on Sunday
  • Her descriptions of Gabe's disassociated states are excellent...this is an ambitious book from a writer not content to revisit familiar territory...Serious and intelligent.

    Independent
  • Ali's strengths lie in a cool authorial distance, and a passion for detail

    The Times
  • A compelling story..Ali is second to none when it comes to capturing modes of speech...Monica Ali is shaping up to be a fine novelist

    Sunday Express
  • The kitchen of the title is the Imperial Hotel in central London, and Ali's dazzling accounts of its manic goings-on make the chef Anthony Bourdain's gory memoir, Kitchen Confidential, seem as genteel as Fanny Cradock.
