«A powerful three-part meditation on the relationship between travel, love and an off-kilter self.»

Financial Times

«Beautiful. Strikingly conceived and hauntingly written.»

, Guardian

«Superb... With this new book Galgut has struck out in a new direction and taken his writing to a whole other level. It is a quite astonishing work»

, Observer

«Acute, beautiful, unsettling. I have rarely felt so moved whilst reading.»

, The Times

«Galgut, ever the wanderer, always the seeker, is here at his most deliberate; as intent on finding meaning as on asking questions.»

, Irish Times

«Haunting... Devastating... This is a wise and brilliant book.»

TLS

«One of the most beautiful and unsettling books I've ever read. I can't remember a more troubling and intense study of rootlessness and loneliness; Galgut is a writer of great, almost frightening, depth.»
