Product description

Review

'Bittersweet, rivetingly drawn, mysteriously languid: a feast for the senses.' The Guardian 'Genie and Paul is nothing short of remarkable.' - Time Out 'This beguiling first novel is a rich, warm, modern reworking of [Paul et Virginie]...The author beautifully captures the fairytale atmosphere of the original.' - The Times

'Soobramanien's poised, resonant tale of innocence and experience is strikingly original... a rare talent.' - Daily Mail

'Polyphonic and intricately patterned' - Times Literary Supplement

'Genie and Paul is quite simply a stunning novel. It exudes the sort of originality that should, if there is any justice in the world, augur a long and honorable career.' - MAUREEN FREELY

'A clever and beautiful novel, bringing new terrain into the literary.'- Amit Chaudhuri

'Superb' --- Financial Times

'The gripping story of her [Genie s] search for him [Paul], layered with richly described memories of the island of their birth, Mauritius, and London, their new home.' - Observer

'An exceptional debut novel. Soobramanien proves her emotional intelligence in her real understanding of what it means to grow up in a country not one s own. Her prose is vivid, clever and effective. ..[her] writing skills are startling and indisputable.' Red Magazine

'A treasure of a book a novel of ideas that is also sensual, thrillingly alive. It is confident and smart, and emotionally resonant.' - Christos Tsiolkas, author of The Slap

'Beautiful, lovingly written first novel... Soobramanien's greatest achievement with Genie and Paul may lie in its expression of the lost time between childhood and adulthood.' --The Quietus

'A stunning debut novel, lyrical and touching.' - Foyles

'A fresh, original story ...the sense and evocation of place is key, and Soobramanien writes with great insight as to how our bonds with those we are closest to shape our lives.' We Love This Book

'Dreamy and still, yet passionately evocative... augers well for Soobraminen s future.' --- Bookmunch
