Reviews

"[The book] moves between gentle irony and moments of profound emotion. It is a riotous, exuberant and sometimes maddening celebration of the power of storytelling, and of the importance of education and culture." -- Christina Patterson * Sunday Times *
"I like to think how many readers are going to admire the courage of this book, revel in its fierce colours, its boisterousness, humour and tremendous pizzazz, and take delight in its generosity of spirit." -- Ursula K Le Guin * Guardian *
"His usual seamless blend of the realistic and fantastic." * Travel Guide *
"Two Years, Eight Months & Twenty-Eight Nights blends Arabian myth, history and sci-fi into a whirlwind fable." * Good Housekeeping *
"Rollicking, lyrical and very enjoyable tale." -- Darragh McManus * Irish Independent *
