Reviews

  • Dazzling, addictive, tremendous. A writer at the height of his powers with a hell of a story to tell

    Guardian
  • Beautifully conceived and exquisitely executed

    Sunday Times
  • The new voice of a changing continent. A writer at the top of his game

    Metro
  • No story could be more of our time than this one. Conceptually brilliant and truly empathic

    Nell Freudenberger, Metro
  • An ultra-intelligent and knowing account of life in the developing world. Simply brilliant

    Daily Mail
  • Isn't this the definition of great fiction, that even when it begins with a character . . . who's nothing like you, by the end you are convinced that it really is about you? That's a kind of miracle

    Salon
  • Even more intriguing, compelling and moving than The Reluctant Fundamentalist. A marvellous book

    Philip Pullman
  • A dazzling stylistic tour de force; a love story disguised as a self help parody freighted with sly social satire. As timely and timeless a novel as I've read in years
