Review:

A superb book. A complex story line, handled with dazzling assurance ... moving and profound.

It is a jewel to be treasured ( The Times)

A writer of genius ... a writer of world class - a master storyteller ( Sunday Times)

Coolly assured novel ... Written with seek elegance, this book delves into the heart of an unmistakably seductive country ( The Good Book Guide)

Her tussle with India is one of the richest treats of contemporary literature ( Guardian)
