Ilona Yusuf, poet and artist, reviews CITY OF SPIES in NEWSLINE: “It’s a coming of age novel. But it isn’t just that.”

One busy afternoon in the middle of the Islamabad Literature Festival, Ilona Yusuf and I found an unoccupied press room at the Margala Hotel and spent a few hours talking about writing.  Ilona is a wonderful poet and artist (see some of her poems and an interview here and her art work here) who took the time to re-read my novels in anticipation of meeting.  Ilona’s review is both thoughtful and insightful, and all the more special to me because her heritage is also half-and-half, so to speak.  See her Newsline review of CITY OF SPIES here.
