Reviews

Tightly written, carefully designed to wrong-foot preconceptions, and astute... An intensely gripping story * Evening Standard *
Certainly his best book since What is the What, The Parade may well be the sound of a major writer finding his mature voice * Spectator *
A readable, atmospheric book * The Times *
This is a tale for our time, an allegory about intervening in foreign lands without knowledge, and so a nightmare vision of our endless wars. -- Thomas E. Ricks
In The Parade, the anxiety grows with every page and every mile to reach an ending that turns everything upside down and sends us into the heart of darkness. A minimalistic, merciless novel. A powerful allegory and a painfully concrete contemporary story-Eggers is a true virtuoso of that synthesis. -- Georgi Gospodinov
Wide-ranging and thoughtful engagement with concepts of power and inequality and whether Western notions of what constitutes 'progress' are always right * Literary Review *
It partakes of a complex of anxieties about America's role as an affluent superpower of dubious virtue * Financial Times *
Egger's commitment to social and political issues continues * Mail on Sunday *
