Recenzii

One of the best writers in the world today
Sharp and elegant ... I did find myself hoping that Facebook and Like (or whatever they are now called) might one day come across this little book - and thinking that its calm and generous view of the world might give them back some part of the optimism that had greeted their arrival.
A calmly rational response to extraordinary circumstances ... there is comfort in having a voice like Shafak's to guide us
Insightful and very moving
A deeply thought-provoking delight
Fortifying and optimistic
One of the most important writers at work today
Shafak's writings are an embodiment of radical remembrance; with existential fervour, they pull together the past and future to bring forth a fully realised present that feels all the more urgent
PRAISE FOR PREVIOUS BOOKS: 'Expect vibrant, vivid and eye-opening descriptions of Middle Eastern life propelled by a tender storyline, all in Shafak's haunting, beautiful and considered prose'
Incredibly sensuous and poetic and evocative
Richly uplifting... truly beautiful writing
Simply magnificent, a truly captivating work of immense power and beauty, on the essence of life and its end
A vivid carnival of life and death, cruelty and kindness, love, politics and deep humanity. Brilliant!
Beautifully written ... a complex vision of how emotions interact with political life
Beautifully written ... calls for the importance of centring knowledge, storytelling, empathy, and wisdom in our lives.
