2012 GUARDIAN FIRST BOOK AWARD READER NOMINATIONS - The book was fun...Magda makes some great observations about Britain and is pretty scathing about the Polish and their culture. (Guardian) A darkly-comic account of a Polish immigrant's experiences in London (Lucy Popescu, Huffington Post) Exceptional book. (Deon Meyer) At its best...Madame Mephisto shows how both totalitarianism and theocracy oppress women and infantilize men. Bakalar...captures how isolating London can be for newcomers. (Max Liu, The Times Literary Supplement)Impressive debut novel.(Michael Stein, Literalab) A very powerful account of the liberating and sometimes bitter experience of living abroad.(CafeBabelBerlin) Punchy debut...Mouthpiece of new Poland or amoral ballbreaker?...what's most striking about the book is its vigour and the curious charisma of Magda herself...a contemporary anti-heroine with a heart of pure titanium.(Elsbeth Lindner, Bookoxygen)A.M. Bakalar created a memorable anti-heroine, worth adapting to the big screen...fantastic first novel! (Jimena Gorraez, Literati)
