Product Details


“Complex, challenging, utterly thrilling.” —The Miami Herald“A startling literary prodigy. . . . [Oyeyemi] has the ability to shift between realism and expressionism without surrendering to self-indulgence. . . . Recalls the visionary worlds of Emily Dickinson, Neruda and even Rimbaud.” —The Washington Post Book World “Beautiful, meandering. . . . [A novel] about the difficulties of knowing who you are, especially if you are born of several incompatible cultures.” —The Times (London)“Again displays [Oyeyemi’s] amazing sure-handedness that is far beyond her years.” —Seattle Post-Intelligencer
