Reader Review(s)

‘This is both a novel of self-discovery and an indictment of a corrupt and muddled war – a kind of sombre picaresque lifted by the vivacity of its language’

Helen Birch, City Limits

 

William Boyd, who has written the introduction to Sozaboy, has described the author as ‘an extraordinary man and an extraordinary writer.’
