Review:

"Written with precision, clarity and rare beauty... Alongside Salman Rushdie and the late Bruce Chatwin, Shakespeare now joins the ranks of the New Exotics school" (Robert Carver New Statesman)

"A story of love and insurrection brilliantly told... A remarkable debut... one of the best books about the continent written by an outsider" (Sunday Times)

"An Englishman's novel of magic realism, flavoured with the more traditional English spices such as thriller and tourchsong, and a touch of Anglo-Saxon irony... A fine literary novel, combining several traditions and genres of fiction" (The Times)

"A dénouement that is unexpected, shocking and brilliantly conceived... I closed the novel with both satisfaction and regret" (Literary Review)

"The Vision of Elena Silves is a terrific novel" (John Sutherland London Review of Books)

Book Description:

'Love, violence, revolution and death... A novel of action in the best tradition of Conrad and Greene’ - Literary Review

Winner of the Somerset Maugham Award.
