Anmeldelser

«Abdolah brings a crucial moment in 19th-century Persian history to vivid life»

* Independent *

«The King probes questions of power and authority through wry fable - Salman Rushdie's Shame meets Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall . . . the story is rich with subtle touches . . . in the grand tradition of Persian literary satire, the writing is playful, subversive, and compassionate . . . resplendent»

* Financial Times *

«Excellent . . . accessible and deceptively light»

* Scotsman *

«A very detailed and well-researched historical account»

* Guardian *

«The King is utterly fabulous in both senses of the word: a sly, witty, knowing fable, full of charm and humour. Deceptively simple in its storytelling, it reads like one of Angela Carter's fairy tales transposed into the nineteenth-century Qajar Persian court. Kader Abdolah is a masterful and completely addictive storyteller»

WILLIAM DALRYMPLE

«A strong and colourful story illuminating the complex forces that have shaped contemporary Iran»

* Metro *

«Glorious»

* The Times *

«Set in the last half of the 19th century, The King is a biography of brutality and ambition; all of its characters strive to shape their own lives as well as the destiny of their evolving nation»

* New York Times *
