Un-put-down-able...one of those one-off unpredictable things... an absolute masterwork. ? Stephen Gray;The relationship between truth and art in this novel is fascinating. Hassim's marvelous, engrossing work held me from chapter to chapter, fuelling my interest in meta-fiction and the role of the writer as historian. ? Tim Huisamen;An award-winning literary epic that tells the tale of three generations of South African Indians. We are taken into the labyrinthine world of Durban's Grey Street, as important in the literary---political imagination of South Africa as Soweto or District Six. ? Mail & Guardian.
