Reviews

Genius is no stranger to the work of Kathleen Jamie, whose finely poised writing and subtly profound sensibility have made her such an artisan of the human heart. * Scotsman *
What is ultimately most impressive is the energy, good humour and panache with which Jamie's language rises to the variety of its occasions. -- Patrick Crotty * Times Literary Supplement *
A beautifully crafted account... the power of Jamie's prose is spare but magical. She writes tenderly but without sentimentality. Should be required reading. * Daily Telegraph *
A wonderfully sensual study of the land and its people which feels more timeless than topical * Observer *
Kathleen Jamie's prose writing is utterly luminous, as you'd expect from her poetry, but Among Muslims (Sort of Books) is much more than a well-written travel book, and its insights are even more urgent in the light of the dangerous and criminal crudity of President Bush's approach to the region * Independent on Sunday Book of the Year Choice 2002 *
This eloquent tale with its plea for understanding and tolerance couldn't have been better timed. * Sunday Times *
It is her beautiful prose, drawn from a rural Scottish palate, that really illuminates the book - a wonderfully sensual study of the land and its people which feels more topical than timeless. * Observer *
A better emissary to the Karakoram could not be imagined. She displays a deep warmth unemcumbered by illusion. * Scotland on Sunday *
Illuminated throughout with a vision that sees beneath surfaces. To share a journey such as this is an enriching experience. -- Norman Lewis
