Reviews
Praise for Of Beasts and Beings

"Merciless, poetic, and beautiful... A postmodern elegy I won't soon forget."
--Alice Sebold

"Of Beasts and Beings is a thought-provoking study of the dehumanizing effects of racial violence and oppression."
--The Guardian

"An ending as audacious as it is surprising."
--Daily Mail (UK)

"A memorable and original novel."
--The Independent

"Zimbabwean writer Holding delivers another powerful tale of guilt and responsibility set in a dystopian Africa.... Holding cleverly implicates the reader in the discrimination and dehumanization that has taken place in his abstract tale, casting us as collaborators in the tragedies playing out across Africa."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
