Reviews

"Lyrical and gripping. . . . There's something magical about the ways in which Appanah makes the betrayals, the falsehoods, the appropriations and the disasters seem inevitable."--BBC Culture "[Appanah's] beautiful prose shines through this translation by Geoffrey Strachan, allowing her to lay bare the danger of words not spoken and the volatility of dreams denied."--Star Tribune (Minneapolis) "Fans of literary fiction and the exploration of the artist will appreciate Waiting for Tomorrow's attention to language and the way the narrative moves between prologue, incident, and aftermath."--Washington Independent Review of Books "Appanah meticulously brings the narrative back in time and then forward, deliberately parceling out pieces of information as the narrative awaits its own unsettling conclusion."--Words Without Borders "The novel ends in high drama--with lives cut short and dreams unfulfilled, with Appanah making it painfully apparent that life is little more than a collector's inventory, a long list of choices and consequences that live on in our memories despite our best efforts to forget. Waiting for Tomorrow aches with longing."--The Arkansas International "[Waiting for Tomorrow's] second act complications produce a genuine page-turning tension that almost feels out of place in a book filled with such lovely language and down-to-earth realities."--Open Letters Review "Rewarding. . . . the characters are complicated and well-drawn and the story immersive."--Publishers Weekly "Appanah's tightly told tale offers an affecting story of displacement, regret, and the meaning of home."--Booklist
