Reviews

'A brilliant, compelling novel about innocence and betrayal.' Kate Saunders, The Times 'It might seem fanciful to call Christopher Hope the South African Evelyn Waugh, but there is something in the comparison... Beautifully paced, elegantly written, witty, moving and provocative.' Andrew van der Vlies, TLS 'Shooting Angels is a mordant coming-of-age novel, a political novel, and a savage portrait of Joe Angel, whose gift for survival in the shifting sands of post-apartheid South Africa, and whose rage for control, are breathtaking to the very end.' Jay Parini, Guardian 'Hope's latest offering is an enticing one, beautifully written... It draws us in and keeps us guessing.' Karen Funnell, Irish Examiner
