Reviews
PRAISE FOR KID MOSES BY MARK R. THORNTON

"I like Kid Moses very much! The prose is wonderfully quiet and controlled . . . very good writing indeed."--Peter Matthiessen, National Book Award winning author of The Snow Leopard and Shadow Country

"Thornton keeps an even tone with the kind of spare, austere language that reflects Moses's stoic attitude and prevents the book from turning maudlin or crusading. . . . [Kid Moses] is a little boy with big contradictions, well worth following on his safari."--The New York Times Book Review

"With the excitement of the archetypal perilous adventure, Thornton's stark, beautiful prose will hold readers in this story of a young boy's struggle to survive in Tanzania today. . . . It's the crisply evoked small moments in this tale of a homeless kid on the run that give the novel its remarkable power."--Booklist, starred review

"[Moses's] is a rough, tough life forthrightly told. . . . Highly recommended for all fiction readers."--Library Journal, starred review

"Thornton excels in showing a harrowing adult world through the eyes of a child who has been forced to grow up early. In the end, this is the rare work of fiction about childhood that refuses to admit any sentimentality into the narrative."--Publishers Weekly

"Kid Moses is a lyrical, touching and profound book."--The Witness, Durban, South Africa

"An open-ended odyssey, as restless and contemplative as a traveler in the trackless veld. . . . This is a wonderfully honest, unsentimental and brutal look at issues that are affecting Africa today."--Cape Times, South Africa

"An exquisite narrative, harrowing, yet poignant."--Bookslive
