Review:

Praise for Black Bread White Beer

Niven Govinden brilliantly evokes the bleak comedy and deranged exhilaration of modern life. This is the sound of the suburbs. - Jake Arnott, author of The Long Firm

I m full of admiration for this novel and the way it captures a couple as a crisis detonates in their marriage and exposes all sorts of emotional and cultural fault lines in the process. Alex Clark

A novel of genuine power and resonance. It is the kind of book readers long for but so rarely find. Stuart Evers

In form and scope, Black Bread White Beer recalls Ian McEwan s novella On Chesil Beach . Tehelka (India)"

Praise for All the Days and Nights

A potent exploration of an artist and her muses. Jeff Jackson, author of Mira Corpora
