Reviews

Richly enigmatic, with regular flashes of Coetzee's piercing intelligence -- Theo Tait * Guardian *
As ever, JM Coetzee manages to dodge every category with mesmeric cunning... This limpid, gnomic and surprisingly witty tale will take root in your imagination' -- Boyd Tonkin * Independent *
There are lots of traditions and tales mixed in - along with mathematics and a wonderfully poetic use of language * Financial Times *
Engaging and thoughtful -- Theo Hobson * Tablet *
A fine, haunting novel that gets under your skin and into your marrow -- Jake Kerridge * Daily Express *
