Reviews

Everything about the book appears modest -- its proportions are those of a literary work; Sheikh's photos are illustration-sized; Cole's texts are seldom longer than a paragraph or two. And yet its theme is overwhelming.--Luc Sante "New York Times: Book Review"
A book on global migrants and refugees by novelist Teju Cole and photographer Fazal Sheikh explores the agency and humanity of the displaced and dispossessed.--Tanvi Misra "CityLab"
In "Human Archipelago" this truth unfolds page by page, plain as day.--Sharon Mizota "Los Angeles Times"
