Jaspreet Singh

“This is a subtle, lyrical novel, told in fragments, and infused with a sense of the beauty of the Kashmir landscape, the pain of unrequited love, and the ugliness of the hostilities between India and Pakistan.” – The Independent

“Chef is an accomplished debut novel that portends even greater things from Singh, a writer who definitely doesn't suffer from an inability to find his own voice.” – Montreal Gazette

“This is courageous writing that asks, and faces the impossibility of one-way answers to, questions of loyalty, love, ownership, and death.” – Daphne Marlatt

“Singh's novel really shines in its elegiac tone and passages of precise and sensual description... The Siachen Glacier, the highest battleground on earth, is in Singh's hands a complex metaphor.” – Montreal Review of Books
