Recensioner i media
"A searing novel" -- Catherine Taylor * Guardian * "In a humorous and beguiling deadpan, Boianjiu conveys the fleeting, vanishing experience of hovering between adolescence and adulthood, at the same time as providing a rare portrait of young Israelis being minced through military service" -- Robert Collins * Sunday Times * "A memorably bold novel... Somewhere between the sardonic humour of Etgar Keret and the epic storytelling of David Grossman, Boianjiu has created a brave, beautiful, political literature that is entirely her own" -- Catherine Taylor * Sunday Telegraph * "This unflinching debut novel depicts with depth and acuity the disorientating effects of fear on young minds... The girls are often lost for words, but the author successfully finds a voice to express the dehumanising horror of warfare in this fragmented plot held together with a passionate, poetic eloquence" -- Anita Sethi * Observer * "[Boianjiu's] voice is distinct. It's confident, raw, amusing - a lot like her women" * New York Times *
