"Magnificent... funny and sad, by turns elegant and terse, romantic and brisk - evocative and entirely beguiling, a wonderful novel" -- Matthew Dennison * Daily Telegraph *
"Profound and original" * Independent *
"A most unusual, fascinating novel...gripping transcontinental adventure" * Herald *
"Brilliantly brutal" * Big Issue *
