A truly exceptional work of fiction, by a writer we should be delirious to have as a contemporary -- Independent on What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours
Enchanting . . . the breadth of Oyeyemi's imagination is impressive, teetering, as ever, on the edge of magical realism. Her use of fairytales, folklore and ghost stories is distinctly reminiscent of the work ofAngela Carter . . . inviting, luscious prose -- Guardian on What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours
Wild, luscious and startling . . . Oyeyemi glides seamlessly across time, space and genre -- Financial Times on What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours
