Review quote

"Vivid, passionate and shedding, as true love does, a brilliant, revealing light on the world beyond itself."--"The Sunday Telegraph" (London)"Epic--. Soueif is at her most eloquent on the subject of her homeland, her prose rich with historical detail and debate. Ultimately, Egypt emerges as the true heroine of this novel."--"The Independent" (London)"Ahdaf Soueif has a talent for blending the personal and political and getting under the skin of each one of her characters."--"Independent on Sunday" (London)"A magnificent work, reminiscent of Marquez and Allende in its breadth and confidence."--"The Guardian""A bold and vibrant novel--. This is political fiction that is also unashamedly romantic--. A triumphant achievement."--Penelope Lively, "Literary Review"show more
