Product Details


“A bravura performance. . . . One wants to immediately read [The Magic of Saida] again . . . to savour it just that little bit longer.”
The Globe and Mail

“Remarkable. . . . It’s impossible not to feel enormous sympathy for [Kamal,] a man who overcomes so many hurdles except that of his own humanity. For creating this character, M. G. Vassanji must be thanked.” 
Vancouver Sun

“A gripping narrative. . . . [Vassanji’s] material is so compelling that he needs little more than to adopt the role of a chronicler. . . . A humble village, in the imagination of this chronicler, becomes a vortex of varying belief systems and ways of life.” 
National Post

“Mysterious and haunting. . . . The seductive power of Vassanji’s prose mesmerizes. . . . Conrad would approve.” 
Quill & Quire
