"One of our most compelling contemporary novelists" * Independent * "Colin Thubron's voice is unique: once heard, difficult to forget" -- Anita Brookner "A tense, precarious achievement, brilliantly evoking a dangerous journey" * The Times * "It is the sharpness of the topography that brings this book to life, the handling of the characters is equally impressive... Thubron has captured, with a vividness that few could match...the charms of a journey into the unknown" * Sunday Telegraph * "An intriguing and worthwhile success" * Times Literary Supplement *
