Reviews

"[Oyeyemi] makes us glad to suspend disbelief."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Profoundly chilling . . . a slow-building neo-Gothic that will leave persevering readers breathless."
--The Boston Globe

"If you've been missing Shirley Jackson all these many years . . . here's a writer who seems to be a direct heir to that lamented one's gothic throne."
--The Austin Chronicle

"Superbly atmospheric. . . . The dark tones of Poe in her haunting have also the elasticity of Haruki Murakami's surreal mental landscapes."
--The Independent (UK)

"[Oyeyemi's] technical skill as a novelist is remarkable, her range of reference formidable and her use of language virtuosic."
--The Daily Telegraph (UK)

"Appealing from page one.... Unconventional, intoxicating and deeply disquieting."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Laced with thought-provoking story lines."
--Booklist
