Reviews

Captures the muddled idealism of the young and its easy perversion into violence . . . and offers some clues to a better understanding of terrorism today. Its a daringly ambitious thing for a writer to attempt, but he pulls it off for a thrilling and moving read.
--"Daily Mail"
An urgent and passionate piece of work . . . fairly afire with an anger on behalf of the worlds dispossessed and powerless that is so conspicuously absent from much cozy and collusive current fiction.
--"The Sunday Telegraph" (UK)
A sharp reminder, as sharp as tomorrows headlines, of how the past will insist on haunting the present. Hari Kunzru writes a clear, clean, elegant prose, and his presentation of political realities is worryingly real.
--John Banville, author of "The Sea"
