  • We Need New Names is a "before" and "after" kind of novel, the kind that marks a new beginning, a new shift in the African literary tradition . . . To me, it is a complete novel in terms of aesthetics and politics

    Mukoma Wa Ngugi, The Rise of the African Novel
  • Bulawayo’s novel is not just a stunning piece of literary craftsmanship but also a novel that helps elucidate today’s world

    Daily Telegraph
  • The challenging rhythm and infectious language of NoViolet Bulawayo's emotionally articulate novel turns a familar tale of immigrant displacement into a heroic ballad. Bulawayo's courage and her literary scope shine out from this outstanding debut

    Daily Mail
  • Darling is 10 when we first meet her, and the voice Ms. Bulawayo has fashioned for her is utterly distinctive — by turns unsparing and lyrical, unsentimental and poetic, spiky and meditative... stunning novel... remarkably talented author

    New York Times
  • Often heartbreaking, but also pulsing with colour and energy

    The Times (Saturday Review)
