Product description

Review

Geraldine Bedell invites us straight into the beating heart of familylife . . . a delicious novel (Meg Rosoff)

Bedell has a light, thoughtful tough when it comes to translating the emotions of a family in crisis, through a lead character who is both warm and funny...fresh...keeps you turning the pages (Evening Standard)

Bedell skilfully sketches the communities of the Gulf - western, Arab, Asian - and their internal stratifications of class, status and tribe. She is as good on human commonalities as she is at communal distinctions...offers a vivid portrait of a family...gripping...light, finely observed, funny and reflective (Guardian)

Politics and passion make for combustion in this acutely observed and often very funny novel (The Times)

Bedell writes amusingly and convincingly about family life, while her choice of location gives the novel an interesting angle (Daily Mail)

A sensitive and intelligent enquiry into prejudice, family, belief, loyalty and love in a very peculiar corner of the 21st century (Independent)
