Reviews

"An uncompromising novel, a portrait of a country ravaged by vendetta and graft." -- Hilary Mantel - New York Review of Books
"Weaves the national into the personal without a trace of the didactic. What is more astonishing is his success in joining the amiably picaresque aspects of the corruption...with the ghastly evil of its underside." -- Richard Eder - New York Times
"A moving, persuasive tragicomedy." -- Entertainment Weekly
"Stunning work." -- The Nation
"Extraordinary." -- Salon
