Reviews

* The story is universal, though sensuously anchored in Manaus, gripping in both its particular twists and its tragic inevitability, it is a human story told in a world made real by a very good writer -- A.S. Byatt on Hatoum's THE BROTHERS * A profoundly textured work that is sophisticated, elegant, unusually vivid and intriguingly convincing. -- Irish Times on Hatoum's TALE OF A CERTAIN ORIENT * Clear in each particular but tantalisingly elusive in its overall meaning, Orphans of Eldorado does what every good telling of a myth should. -- Adrian Turpin Financial Times * Delicately crafted and dreamlike. Financial Times
