“Madcap, moving and always fascinating.” –The Washington Post

“As the story follows their adventures, some comic, some pathetic, each character finds a different London….[al-Shaykh’s] novel is funny and beautifully written. She has a perfect ear for dialogue and tone.” —Sunday Telegraph

“For all its deceptive lightness of touch, the novel teems with ideas: memory and exile, language, desire and identity, and the search for order in the chaos of a metropolis. It is also very funny. London…allows Shaykh to exercise her trenchant, at times ribald, wit.” —Literary Review

Only in London offers an exquisite perspective of estrangement and recognition.” —The Observer
