Praise For Eight Months on Ghazzah Street

"Mantel is the blackest of black comedians; she can make your flesh creep with horror and especially with the apprehension of it. Her approach is slow and stealthy; the hair on the back of your neck rises."-Gabriele Annan, The New York Times Review of Books
