Tymon Smith Reviews Saracen at the Gates by Zinaid Meeran

Saracen at the GatesVerdict: carrot

Carefully balancing hilarity, romance and poignancy, Meeran paints a convincing portrait of a world of fluid identities, rigid customs, crazy lesbian punks and sex-slave traders. A fast-moving, wholly modern romp of a novel that hopefully marks the beginning of a promising career, this is one of the most assured debuts in years.
