Publishers Weekly names Kintu one of the Best Summer Books 2017. Here's what deputy reviews editor Gabe Habash has to say:
I recommend Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi’s Kintu, a sprawling, striking epic that traces a curse on one Ugandan family’s bloodline through the centuries. It reminded me of some of my favorite long novels from the past few years, including Marlon James’s A Brief History of Seven Killings, Eka Kurniawan’s Beauty Is a Wound, and Annie Proulx’s Barkskins.
