'[Parajuly] writes finely crafted prose in which local expressions and ideas constantly jump and weave' New Statesman.
'Parajuly's deft portrayal of his characters' relationships - both with each other and with their old and new homes - is original and convincing. Just as engaging as this nuanced portrait of a generation caught between East and West is Parajuly's sharp depiction of social and economic problems besetting this little known part of the world. Illuminating and compelling, Land Where I Flee is a potent mixture of national and familial politics' The Spectator.
'Easily the most intelligent and entertaining novel to come out of South Asia in a decade' The Telegraph of India.
'An intelligent novel about identity in an ever-changing world, offering a glimpse into a fascinating culture' The Lady.
