Reviews

Praise for What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours

"Magical and show stopping." --Elle.com

"Oyeyemi so expertly melds the everyday, the fantastic, and the eternal, we have to ask if the line between 'real' and 'unreal' is murkier than we imagined--or to what extent a line exists at all. . . .The deeper one descends into the fabulist warrens of these stories, the more mystery and menace abound, and with each story I had the delightful and rare experience of being utterly surprised. . . .Transcendent." --The New York Times Book Review

"It is, in a word, flawless. . . .Oyeyemi seems to be incapable of writing anything that's not wholly original. . . .Oyeyemi manages to make the story both realistic and fantastical, and the characters are rendered with grace and compassion. . . .What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours is a lot of things: dreamy, spellbinding, and unlike just about anything you can imagine. It's a book that resists comparisons; Oyeyemi's talent is as unique as it is formidable." -- Michael Schaub, NPR

"Oyeyemi's fictional world is scintillating and eccentric, an 'implosion of memory, ' as one character puts it.--The New Yorker

"What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours. . . boasts ambitious stories written masterfully by an adventurous author, and is another example of Oyeyemi's skill at finding inspiration in the smallest and most ephemeral details." --Women in the World, in association with The New York Times
