Praise for Nadeem Aslam and Season of the Rainbirds

“Genuinely exciting. . . . This is one of the most impressive first novels of recent years.” —Salman Rushdie

“[Aslam] has emerged as one of the most exciting and serious British novelists writing now.” —Colm Tóibín

“A model of compact unadorned storytelling.” —The Observer (London)

“A real treat.” —The Daily Telegraph (London)

“Aslam quietly captures his country’s oppressive past and the ferocity of its religious schisms.” —The Independent (London)

“Aslam lovingly explores the daily rhythms and beauties of the Islamic life of his youth, while providing insight into the turbulent modern history of his native land.” —Publishers Weekly

“Extraordinary. . . . Aslam has created a novel which—grave yet exultant, brutal but compassionate—achieves its complex humanity, and its final affirmations of love and beauty, through a real reckoning with despair and heartbreak.” —Pankaj Mishra, New York Review of Books

“Richly atmospheric . . . engagingly introspective. . . . Aslam reveals—artfully and heartbreakingly—a psychology at war with itself.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Stylistically dazzling, full of poetic, richly descriptive and tender passages. . . . His characters’ inner lives are explored in-depth, flaws and all. . . . A novel as affecting as it is provocative.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review
