REVIEWS

"Impressive . . . Rowan Hisayo Buchanan [is] a 27-year-old with a very big literary career in front of her . . . Slick and intelligent... it's the subtle brilliance of Buchanan's back-to-front tale that really left me reeling." ― Stylist

"Elegant, accomplished debut... Although this is a dark novel, it is also as rich and vivid as the chapter headings' descriptions of paint colours." ― Express

"Lyrical and endearing." ― New York Times Book Review

"This 
beautiful novel explores creativity and the complicated relationships between parents and children." ― Psychologies

"This elegant and moving novel burns slowly, building in intensity as it develops to explore the subjects of identity, alienation and desire." ― 
Fanny Blake, Daily Mail

"Harmless Like You is a refreshing, bold book about understatement." ― Sunday Telegraph
