Review:

It asks to be read more than twice, and the rewards are dazzling ( Observer)

Delights with its quirky humanity and black humour and impresses by its total originality ( Vogue)

Captures perfectly the moral squalor and political paralysis that enshrouds a society awaiting the death of a long-term dictator ( Guardian)
