Reviews

Praise for Panic in a Suitcase

"Sentence for sentence, this is the wittiest, most intelligent book by a first-time author I've read in a long time." --Aleksandar Hemon, The Week

"Brilliant and often funny ... the kind of fiction that is richer than real life." --The New York Times

"This is the great immigrant story drained of its inspirational hype. . . . One wonders if Akhtiorskaya hasn't descended from some unacknowledged Russian branch of Kingsley Amis's family. . . . Genius." --The Washington Post
