I loved it. It's wise and absorbing and the voices of all the characters are so incredibly distinct. A triumph.
Louise O’Neill, author of 'Almost Love and Asking For It'

Very funny but packs a hell of an emotional punch. It's an intimate epic, spanning continents and decades but rooted in the internal life of its characters.
Nish Kumar, stand-up comedian and actor

A wise and moving novel about family, love and the people we're destined to be.
Stylist, 'April's best new books'

A beautifully written and thought-provoking piece of work, which balances humour, anger and melancholy in a way that is charming and utterly engrossing.
The List

The novel captures the changing faces of racism with memorable vividness.
