Reviews

"Oyeyemi brilliantly conjures up the raw emotions and playground banter of childhood. . . . A masterly first novel."-The New York Times Book Review"Oyeyemi writes about childhood as if she were not inventing but truly remembering it, not through the distancing lens of time, but as scary and magical as it really was." -San Francisco Chronicle"Remarkable. . . . As original as it is unsettling, The Icarus Girl runs straight at the heart of what it means to belong.- O, The Oprah Magazine"[The Icarus Girl] provides evidence of a vivid imagination capable of moving freely between cultures and continents. . . .Haunting and suspense-filled."-The Washington Post Book World
