Review

Stunning . . . amusing, sad, wise

Ghosh has found his own distinctive voice - polished and profound . . . A compelling novel, wistful in its tone, assured in its achieved vision



PRAISE FOR SEA OF POPPIES



'Sea of Poppies Boasts a varied collection of characters to love and hate, and provides wonderfully detailed descriptions of opium production ... utterly involving and piles on tension until the very last page'



'A glorious babel of a novel ... marvellously inventive ... utterly involving ... The next volume cannot come too soon'



'An utterly involving book'



'This is a panoramic adventure story, with a Dickensian energy and scope'



'Ghosh's narrative is enriched with a wealth of historical detail ... as well as intricate characterisation that makes interaction among the diverse group truly absorbing'



'There can be fewer more exciting settings for a novel than a sea-tossed sailing ship ... Ghosh piles detail upon detail in a rumbustical adventure'



'Ripping post-colonial yarn ... Ghosh spins a fine story with a quite irresistible flow, breathing exuberant life ... an absorbing vision'
