INTERNATIONAL ACCLAIM FOR THE BOOK OF SECRETS Vassanji masterfully weaves an extraordinarily colorful and richly complicated carpet. A big book in every sense. As I read this book about exiled people squeezed by war and circumstance, I thought of other novels that seem its cousins: Timothy Findley’s Famous Last Words, Michael Ondaatje’s The English Patient, Graham Greene’s The Heart of the Matter. Lawrence Scanlan, Globe and Mail. A poignant, questioning work that confirms Vassanji as one of our most thoughtful, as well as one of our more able, writers.
