Reviews

"A vibrant portrait of South Africa today."-- "New Yorker"
"As a whole, the novel's strength is . . . this new phenomenon of the socially divisive push for wealth and status. Personal wealth, Mda seems to be saying, is the new arbiter of class and privilege."-- "Bookslut"
"Mda's writing is sharp and quick moving. With ample dialogue and a fair dose of action both in cars and in bed, the novel would translate into a stellar film. It's filled with vivid images of beautiful people and cigar clubs contrasting the occasional Sunday visit home to Soweto."--Emma Schneider "Full Stop"
"A wonderful, racy satire on life in one cross-section of the new South Africa."--Sheridan Griswold "Mmegi Online"
