“Powerful and stylistically rich … His best book yet … Yasmin, in her attempts to blend the very different worlds within her into a satisfying sense of self, is as good a symbol of this country as we could ask for.” - Montreal Gazette

“A multilayered journey from darkness to light…rich in character as well as emotion.” - The Hamilton Spectator

“Heart-wrenching … with a searing intensity and a powerful sensitivity that sweeps aside the politics of identity and lays bare the painful and beautiful human condition.” - Vancouver Sun
