About Hugh Paxton, the travel writer and  novelist

Literary Reviews

What the critics have said about Homunculus

"Quite simply, Homunculus is outstanding, the best piece of new fiction I’ve seen for a long time.."

The Johannesburg Star

"Homunculus reads like a sick compilation of every report ever of anarchy in Africa, in one back-to-back orgy of senseless violence.


Not a book to pack for the beach, then? Well, here lies Paxton's achievement: he makes all this full-on nastiness not just compulsive reading, but actually bloody funny."

The Spectator
