Kartography: A Novel

'“A gorgeous novel of perimeters and boundaries, of the regions—literal and figurative—in which we’re comfortable moving about and those through which we’d rather not travel . . . Shamsie’s wry humor infuses and quickens the narrative, leavening even the most serious scenes without detracting from their emotional weight.” —Los Angeles Times   “[In Kartography] words are used as vehicles conveying both emotions and intelligence, while at the same time—because the whole novel hinges on a secret that is hidden from the narrator—Shamsie knows that words aren’t exactly everything, either.” —The Guardian   “The descriptions of Karachi were so graphic I could feel the heat and the tension emanating from the pages of the book. . . . Gripping and thought provoking.” —BBC.com   “[Kartography leaves] you feeling wistful and [touches] some place in your heart you didn’t even know existed . . . even though the story came to a magnificent end yet you wish [Shamsie] hadn’t finished the book.” —The Rumpus'
