If there is a more inspired writer of fiction than Aleksandar Hemon currently at work in English, I haven’t read him. Startlingly fresh and original . . . Read and rejoice
Eccentric, witty and alive with compassion
Much of the wonder here is in his swaggeringly supple prose, which is by turns delectably lavish and blunt . . . Some of the richest delights in contemporary fiction, as well as some of the best jokes
Crackles with wit and dances with invention
