Product description

Review

‘Funny and wise and sumptuously written.’ Jonathan Franzen

'Blithely gifted…an ambitious, finely chiselled work.' John Updike

'Witty, acerbic and immensely compelling …Whitehead is a first-rate writer.’ Financial Times

' Hugely talented…Colson Whitehead has produced an immensely rich, many stranded novel. The writing is inspired on every page. Just Wonderful! One of my books of the year.' Time Out

'Such is the buoyancy of his talent, and the protean assuredness of his prose, that the result is controlled, poignant, wittily observed and often gleefully comic.' Guardian

'Dazzling … It may be nothing new to suggest that history is fiction; but the pleasure of reading this ingenious patchwork lies in how it reminds us of the vitality of those fictions.' Independent on Sunday
