«Few writers can engineer a sentence like NoViolet Bulawayo»

Irish Times

«Bulawayo is really out-Orwelling Orwell. This is a satire with sharper teeth, angrier, and also very, very funny»

New York Times Book Review

«Glory revels in the absurd but offers a terrifying vision of political disintegration for readers today»

Financial Times *Summer Reads of 2022*

«An urgent and engaging meditation on the farce of totalitarianism and the struggle of those who live under it to forge something better»


«Glory is a witty and moving tribute to the people of Zimbabwe and their history»

Literary Review

«Allegory, satire and fairytale rolled into one mighty punch»


«Brave, and moving »

, Scotsman

«Vital and universal »

, Observer

«Bulawayo broaches what it means to fight for democracy and call somewhere home in a timely and imaginative way . . . A memorable, funny and yet serious allegory about a country's plight under tyranny and what individual and collective freedom means in an age of virtual worlds and political soundbites»

, Financial Times

«It delivers, over the course of 400 pages of wordplay and animal magic, a surprisingly warm, intimate and, yes, human feeling»

, The Times

«You thought you were getting a novel as good as We Need New Names . . . Glory is even more dazzling . . . Calls to mind other great storytellers such as Herta Müller, Elif Shafak and Zimbabwean compatriot Yvonne Vera»

, Guardian

«Bulawayo's tale of dictatorship and oppression explores the exaltation and downfall of a would-be savior»

The 50 Most Anticipated Books of 2022, Oprah Daily

«Robert Mugabe is there in all but name in this striking allegory - an Animal Farm that shows how narratives of liberation and self-determination curdle under a dictator's power»
