"Unreservedly a masterpiece" Scotland on Sunday "A huge, comic novel... A shimmering, shifting discourse... mythological but also cheerfully disenchanted; political and playful; cartoonish but also epical... the African novel may well have delivered its greatest masterpiece" -- Brian Morton Sunday Herald "Epic...daring satire" Sunday Times "Fantastic" -- John Updike "Truly exciting... the author is a master of farce" Daily Telegraph
