Reviews

'... a compelling narrative and an absorbing (and sometimes uncomfortable) disquisition on relative morality and justice.' Financial Times 'This novel is remarkable on every level...It is a piece of narrative brilliance in its construction. And is compelling in a new, quiet and beguiling way. Jones was shortlisted for the Booker Prize for his previous novel, Mister Pip, and he is sure to win fans and accolades for this one.' Sunday Tasmanian 'Lloyd Jones has plotted a fine and moving story with enormous compassion, emotional depth and tender insight into humanity.' Sunday Telegraph 'It would be difficult to think of another novelist quite as original or fearless as 55-year-old New Zealand author Lloyd jones. A writer of truly international sensibility ... Lloyd Jones's novel is freshly minted, unsettling and unsentimental.' The Monthly 'New Zealand writer Lloyd Jones is a master storyteller ...' Weekend Australian 'Lloyd Jones's Hand Me Down World is a rich and subtle exploration of a refugee experience; it asks great questions about the nature of both longing and belonging.' -- Michael McGirr Age 'Jones is a daring writer who can be relied on to ignore expectation, and is becoming one of the most interesting, honest and thought-provoking novelists working today.' Guardian UK 'superbly disconcerting...[a] masterful, prismatic piece of storytelling.' Independent UK
