Reviews

  • Tightly written, carefully designed to wrong-foot preconceptions, and astute... An intensely gripping story

    Evening Standard
  • Certainly his best book since What is the What, The Parade may well be the sound of a major writer finding his mature voice

    Spectator
  • A parable of progress, as told by J.M. Coetzee to Philip K. Dick

    Richard Flanagan
  • The Parade is a heartbreaker and a mindbender. It is a novel of ideas that packs an emotional punch that left me reeling. With clear, unadorned prose, Eggers lays bare the costs of war, and of peace

    Tayari Jones
  • A readable, atmospheric book

    The Times
  • This is a tale for our time, an allegory about intervening in foreign lands without knowledge, and so a nightmare vision of our endless wars.

    Thomas E. Ricks
  • In The Parade, the anxiety grows with every page and every mile to reach an ending that turns everything upside down and sends us into the heart of darkness. A minimalistic, merciless novel. A powerful allegory and a painfully concrete contemporary story-Eggers is a true virtuoso of that synthesis.

    Georgi Gospodinov
  • Wide-ranging and thoughtful engagement with concepts of power and inequality and whether Western notions of what constitutes 'progress' are always right

    Literary Review
  • It partakes of a complex of anxieties about America's role as an affluent superpower of dubious virtue

    Financial Times
  • Egger's commitment to social and political issues continues
