Product Details

Praise

“Mankell [is] a master storyteller.”
The San Francisco Chronicle

“Admirable. . . . [Mankell is] a writer in search of metaphor and meaning. . . . [Which] makes for an elusively compelling narrative voice.”
The Boston Globe

“Uplifting. . . . Chronicler of the Winds seems to widen his repertory, switching between the nightmarish, the dream-like and the grittily realistic. . . . Mankell evokes a saintliness among those whose brief lives have been tempered by genocide, exploitation and hardship.”
The New York Times

 “Cinematic and theatrical . . . structured by gorgeous moments of text that transcend the page and become vivid images seared onto the imagination.”
Yale Daily News
