Zitat
'Heartbreaking, funny, exquisitely written and, without doubt, a literary masterpiece and a classic.' Daily Mail 'Stunning. This novel is an immense achievement.' Observer 'Here is a new writer endowed with the gift of ancient storytellers.' Chinua Achebe 'I look with awe and envy at this young woman from Africa who is recording the history of her country. She is fortunate - and we, her readers, are even luckier.' Edmund White 'A magnificent novel.' Independent 'Absolutely awesome. One of the best books I've ever read.' Judy Finnigan 'Vividly written, thrumming with life...a remarkable novel. In its compassionate intelligence as in its capacity for intimate portraiture, this novel is a worthy successor to such twentieth-century classics as Chinua Achebe's "Things Fall Apart" and V. S. Naipaul's "A Bend in the River".' Joyce Carol Oates 'I wasted the last fifty pages, reading them far too greedily and fast, because I couldn't bear to let go...It is a magnificent second novel - and can't fail to find the readership it deserves and demands.' Margaret Forster '[Deserves] a place alongside such works as Pat Barker's "Regeneration" trilogy and Helen Dunmore's depiction of the Leningrad blockade, "The Siege".' Guardian 'Adichie uses language with relish. She infuses her English with a robust poetry.' Helen Dunmore, The Times
