'Aisha is Ahfaf Soueif's first book and to say it is promising is to understate the case: it is highly accomplished. Aisha is further evidence of the fact that some of the most confident British fiction is being written by people of mixed cultures' Victoria Glendinning, Sunday Times 'There is lively, lucid writing here, vivid description and sharply observed dialogue' Isabel Raphael, The Times 'A highly unusual and richly impressive first novel ... The author weaves a circle round us thrice with the touch of a born sorceress. One awaits her next with great expectations' Christopher Wordsworth, Guardian 'The writing is deft and pattient, the understanding of this trickiest of narrative forms is sure and rarely off-target' Edward Said, London Review of Books
