Oyeyemi treats you to a kaleidoscopic weekend in Prague, as dazzling as it is effortlessly unique.

Get lost in the story like you would an unfamiliar city and let it reward you with moments of philosophical clarity, wheelbarrow rides, raw emotion and raw onions.

This novel is a holiday, an adventure, a marvel and a guide. It is a story about the lies behind the lies we tell and a city as a living thing, sustained by the lives of its inhabitants. Suffused with warmth and joy, Parasol against the Axe is a love letter to Prague, and to the art of storytelling.

A writer of sentences so elegant that they gleam. Ali Smith

A writer we should be delirious to have as a contemporary. Independent
