Praise for Green-eyed Thieves:
A highly original work from a South African writer.

Coovadia has created a glorious firework of a book. His prose fizzes along, full of invention and wit, and his story touches on major issues with the lightest hands.
– Margaret von Klemperer, The Witness
Green-eyed Thieves is in a space and maybe a class of its own ... A real treat.
– Chris Dunton, The Sunday Independent
The most fiercely intelligent fun you can have between two (book) covers ... an exhilarating ride.
– Jacqui L’Ange, Cape Times
