Reviews

"Post-apartheid South Africa is indeed a new world. . . . With this novel, Wicomb proves a keen guide." --The New York Times

"Delectable. . . . Wicomb's prose is as delightful and satisfying in its culmination as watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean." --Christian Science Monitor

"[A] thoughtful, poetic novel." --The Times (London)

"Deep and subtle. . . . This tight, dense novel gives complex history a human face." --Kirkus
