Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times - The Washington Post - The Guardian - Financial Times "A tale of mighty love, loyalty and courage. It simply must be read."--The Spectator (U.K.) "Wise and agonizing and thrilling to read."--Zadie Smith "[An] eloquent memoir . . . at once a suspenseful detective story about a writer investigating his father's fate . . . and a son's efforts to come to terms with his father's ghost, who has haunted more than half his life by his absence."--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "This outstanding book . . . roves back and forth in time with a freedom that conceals the intricate precision of its art."--The Wall Street Journal "Truly remarkable . . . a book with a profound faith in the consolations of storytelling . . . a testament to [Matar's] father, his family and his country."--The Daily Telegraph (U.K.) "The Return is a riveting book about love and hope, but it is also a moving meditation on grief and loss. . . . Likely to become a classic."--Colm Tóibín "Matar's evocative writing and his early traumas call to mind Vladimir Nabokov."--The Washington Post "Utterly riveting."--The Boston Globe "A moving, unflinching memoir of a family torn apart."--Kazuo Ishiguro, The Guardian "Beautiful . . . The Return, for all the questions it cannot answer, leaves a deep emotional imprint."--Newsday "A masterful memoir, a searing meditation on loss, exile, grief, guilt, belonging, and above all, family. It is, as well, a study of the shaping--and breaking--of the bonds between fathers and sons. . . . This is writing of the highest quality."--The Sunday Times (U.K.)
