WINNER OF THE KIRIYAMA PRIZE

"Impressive. . . . [Aslam's] prose is stylistically dazzling. . . . His characters' inner lives are explored in-depth, flaws and all. . . . A novel as affecting as it is provocative."--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Extraordinary. . . . It deepens our knowledge of life. . . . Aslam has created a novel which-grave yet exultant, brutal but compassionate-achieves its complex humanity, and its final affirmations of love and beauty, through a real reckoning with despair and heartbreak."--The New York Review of Books

"Artful . . . and heartbreaking. . . . [Aslam's] prose is richly atmospheric, his tone engagingly introspective."--The New York Times Book Review

"A writer's tour de force. . . . Powerful."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Aslam is a rich and vividly metaphorical writer . . . This is an exquisitely sad novel, and it is worth the effort of letting its spell take you over."--Newsday

"Poetic, sensuous, precisely descriptive and lavishly allusive prose . . . Maps for Lost Lovers not only an important and memorable achievement, but a book that is deeply satisfying to read."--The Washington Times

"Aslam reveals-artfully and heartbreakingly-a psychology at war with itself . . . His prose is richly atmospheric, his tone engagingly introspective."--Akash Kapur, The New York Times Book Review

"[An] exquisitely crafted, lushly written novel . . . Aslam combines sensual prose with a compelling storyline."--Booklist

"Poignant, lushly written . . . a truthful story that resists easy conclusions."--Publishers Weekly
