Praise

“[Oyeyemi] makes us glad to suspend disbelief.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Profoundly chilling . . . a slow-building neo-Gothic that will leave persevering readers breathless.”
The Boston Globe

“If you’ve been missing Shirley Jackson all these many years . . . here’s a writer who seems to be a direct heir to that lamented one’s gothic throne.”
The Austin Chronicle

“Superbly atmospheric. . . . The dark tones of Poe in her haunting have also the elasticity of Haruki Murakami’s surreal mental landscapes.”
The Independent (UK)

“[Oyeyemi’s] technical skill as a novelist is remarkable, her range of reference formidable and her use of language virtuosic.”
The Daily Telegraph (UK) 

“Appealing from page one…. Unconventional, intoxicating and deeply disquieting.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Laced with thought-provoking story lines.”
