Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize

A Washington Post and Boston Globe Best Book of the Year

“Deeply affecting. . . . No recent novel does a more powerful job of capturing the day-to-day lives of . . . immigrants.” —The New York Times

“Masterful. . . . Not only a timely book, but a gut-wrenching, emotionally honest one, as well.” —NPR
“A major achievement. . . . Sahota is a clear-eyed, unflinching storyteller.” —The New Yorker

The Grapes of Wrath for the 21st century. . . . Sahota has captured the plight of millions of desperate people struggling to find work, to eke out some semblance of a decent life in a world increasingly closed-fisted and mean.” —The Washington Post
“[A] sprawling, stunning novel.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Sahota’s superb novel helps to make the reality of migrants a little less unimaginable and a little more human.” —The Wall Street Journal
