'Omar Musa's writing is tough and tender, harsh and poetic, raw and beautiful, it speaks to how we live and dream now. This novel broke my heart a little but it also made me ecstatic at the possibilities of what the best writing can do. His voice is genuine, new and exciting; his voice roars.' Christos Tsiolkas
'This stunning debut novel has such swaggering exuberance that it will make other most other fiction you read this year seem criminally dull. You have been warned.' Irvine Welsh
'Musa is a trailblazing literary talent, using visceral language that jumps off the page like rapid fire.' Yen
'It's his mixture of the harsh and the tender that gives Musa's prose an unpredictable tension…[he] is not afraid of emotion.' Saturday Age
'An ambitious, powerful and exciting debut.' Men's Style
'Musa infuses his debut with [a] kind of energy rarely seen.' Sydney Morning Herald
