Reviews

Beautifully written in cunning, punning, glancing prose * Independent *
A whirlwind ... Owes plenty to Salman Rushdie and some to Hollywood ... Exuberant, knowingly exotic and deceptively serious * Guardian *
Kamila Shamsie has created a rich, bright world * Times Literary Supplement *
A funny, clever and romantic story ... perhaps Kamila Shamsie is our new multi-culti Nancy Mitford; a global girl who does love in both hot and cold climates -- Barbara Trapido
The stories within the stories describe Pakistani society, its peoples and its mores, better than anything that has come from the Other Side for a long time. This is a good read * India Today *
