Reviews

"One of the greatest writers of our time." --Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, The Guardian

"His novels . . . have been deservedly canonized by the iconic [Penguin Classics] series." --The Wall Street Journal

"Beautifully compact . . . It takes its reader on a journey out of the colonial matrix and into the world of the real, showing us life reclaimed in all its complexity from the simplifying template of colonialism. . . . It has an undeniable power." --Uzodinma Iweala, from the Introduction

"It has the rare qualities of restraint, intelligence and sensitivity." --The Times Literary Supplement

"A sensitive novel about the Gikuyu in the melting pot that sometimes touches the grandeur of tap-root simplicity." --The Guardian
