Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise from the U.K. for The Year of the Runaways:
 
"A brilliant political novel, deeply felt, told in the most intimate of ways...Sahota knows how to turn a phrase, how to light up a scene, how to make you stay up late to learn what happens next.  This is a novel that takes on the largest questions and still shines in its smallest details...a brilliant and beautiful novel." —Kamila Shamsie, The Guardian
 
 "All you can do is surrender, happily, to its power." —Salman Rushdie
 
 "A novel of great moral intelligence...deeply impressive." —Claire Lowdon, The Sunday Times
 
 "Sahota proves a wonderfully evocative storyteller...fascinating...the real thing." —Mihir Bose, The Independent
 
 "Should be compulsory reading. A magnificent achievement." —John Harding, Daily Mail
 
 "The best novel of the year....judges of forthcoming literary prizes need look no further." —Cressida Connolly, The Spectator
 
"A rich, intricate, beautifully written novel, bursting and seething with energy"
—Kate Saunders, The Times
 
“Nothing short of an asteroid impact would have made me put the book down” —Irish Times
