Reviews

  • Extraordinary... as an evocation of family love, with all its sharpness, pain and need, Meatless Days is almost faultless

    New Statesman
  • A jewel of insight and beauty

    Los Angeles Times Book Review
  • Some of the more heart-shaking writing about love and grief I've ever read

    Kamila Shamsie, from the introduction
  • The author has a gift for rendering her family with a few, deft strokes, turning them out as whole and complete as eggs

    Anita Desai
  • Dazzling... Suleri is a postcolonial Proust

    Voice Literary Supplement
  • Suleri writes with a surgical intellectual frankness... and a poetic precision which crisps the reader into paying absolute attention

    London Review of Books
  • A tour de force of memory and interpretation...What makes Meatless Days such an astonishing book is its corrosive effect on partitions of all kinds - between body and history, politics and poetry, language and experience, the East and the West.

    Village Voice
  • Nine autobiographical tales that move easily back and forth among Pakistan, Britain, and the United States. . . . She forays lightly into Pakistani history, and deeply into the history of her family and friends. . . . The Suleri women at home in Pakistan make this book sing

    New York Times Book Review
  • An incredibly smart, dryly funny and hugely moving read

    The Pool
  • A bewitching memoir of loss... remarkable

    The National
