Michiko Kakutani, for the New York Times said: “By mixing the real and the surreal, and using old fairy-tale magic, Hamid has created a fictional universe that captures the global perils percolating beneath today’s headlines, while at the same time painting an unnervingly dystopian portrait of what might lie down the road. ”
As Renee and Shirin suggested, this seems like an excellent followup to our reading of Home Fire.
