Beggar's Feast Reviews
"Starred Review. Prepare for a verbal feast that will thoroughly entertain and satisfy, yet leave you hungering for more." - Kirkus
"The easy postcolonial comparison might be Rushdie or Ondaatje, but Sam Kandy, the inventive and ambitious scrabbler, also has a bit of Saul Bellow's Augie March, while his humble beginnings ("a no one from nowhere"), his invented name, his climb to money and manners and motorcars and English suits and silver cigarette cases remind me of that other signifying cipher upstart, Jay Gatsby." - The Globe and Mail
"Told in prose as circuitous as Sams life, this at-times affected novel reveals just how much can be laid to waste through one mans need to get ahead." - Publishers Weekly
