About the Author

She has written for politics and culture blogs across the political spectrum, and has previously written a graphic novel, Cairo, illustrated by M. K. Perker, and a series of comics based on her own experiences, for D.C. Comics.

Reviews

An exhilarating techno-thriller but also far more than that... Wilson has created in this rich, literate novel a profound dialogue between tradition and modernity, belief and non-belief, fairy tale and urban reality. * Guardian *
Brilliant... witty, imaginative and unorthodox in all senses * Observer *
Among the most original and challenging books of 2012, and my personal pick for at least one major award in 2013. * Guardian *
Charming and original * Sunday Telegraph *
Wilson writes beautifully, tells a great story, and even makes computer hackery seem like magic. * Sunday Times *
A Harry Potter-ish action-adventure romance [that] unfolds against the backdrop of the Arab Spring... Improbably charming... A bookload of wizardry and glee. * New York Times *
Marvelous... Intoxicating... Hugely entertaining... It doesn't take magical powers to predict it will be one of the year's best-loved books. * Washington Post *
