- Huffington Post
“Consistently confounding expectations, Mukherjee’s story of the gathering descent of a solitary soul is both poignant and unsentimental, the work of a notably sophisticated writer.”
- Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
“An elegant and accomplished debut…blends the poignancy of a coming-of-age story with the rawer excitements of an urban thriller.”
- Sunday Telegraph
“Mukherjee writes wryly and wonderfully…deeply engaging and brilliantly observed.”

“The writing…has a sculptured clarity. Assured and fearless…This is subtle, precise writing that penetrates character and motive with astringent humor.”
