Finely observed.
Searing, savage, and deeply moving: an unforgettably vivid picture of a time of turmoil.--Amitav Ghosh
Haunting...Mukherjee can recall Tolstoy in his ability to bring to life a diverse and expansive set of characters and to sharply invoke interior worlds...[it's] a sophisticated meditation on suffering that invites empathy for characters who embrace violent ideologies as a result of injustice without ever vindicating the horrific violence they commit.--Hirsh Sawhney
Very ambitious and very successful...One of Mukherjee's great gifts is precisely his capacity to imagine the lives of others...Neel Mukherjee terrifies and delights us simultaneously.--A. S. Byatt
Masterful...His fierce intelligence and sophisticated storytelling combine to produce an unforgettable portrait of one family riven by the forces of history and their own desires.--Patrick Flanery
Rich and engrossing...Consistently vivid and well realized.--Theo Tait
Breathtakingly tense...the force of this journey hits you in waves.
Unfailingly beautiful...Resembles a tone poem in its dazzling orchestration of the crescendo of domestic racket. His eye is as acute as his ear: the physicality of people and objects is delineated with a hyper-aesthetic vividness.--Jane Shilling
A devastating portrayal of a decadent society and the inevitably violent uprising against it...ferocious, unsparing, and brutally honest.--Anita Desai
