'A moving and significant debut' -- The Guardian

'Compelling, disturbing, moving, but also very haunting, the sort of book that won't leave you . . .Impressive and powerful’ -- Sarah Broadhurst

'Emerging from this moving and graceful novel is the insistence that memories of love will survive the country of men' -- Independent

'Exquisite . . . full of essential truths: the more you read the more you feel the childhood described in it is your's' -- Nadeem Aslam, author of 'Maps for Lost Lovers'

'Extraordinary . . . Hailed internationally as one of the most brilliant literary debuts of recent years' -- The Times

'Moving and significant . . . A poignant tale of personal and collective betrayal' -- FT Magazine

'Powerful...Matar's novel shares themes with McEwan's ‘Atonement’, Frayn's ‘Spies’, and can hold its head high in such singular company' -- Sunday Times

‘A seismically tragic tale of loss and love . . . perfectly muted, exquisitely rendered, provoking a gasp, a tremor of awe’ -- The Scotsman

‘Masterly in its pacing, evocative, lyrical and finely observed. A promising and moving debut’ -- TLS
