November 06, 2003
— "[T]he powerful and haunting story of an Indian family living in the turbulence of an emergent Kenya. Through the eyes of the central character, Vikram Lall, a middle-aged man now exiled to a small Ontario town, we read an astonishing tapestry of irresistible vignettes, brilliantly exploring the painful lessons of history–national, culture and personal–amidst the fragility of human relationships. Drawing simultaneously both Vikram’s and his country’s revolution, the novel chronicles his own evolution against a mesmerizing literary landscape replete with luminous memories, fascinating characters and inspiring prose.”
