“Dr. Quandour's vivid prose cuts like a Cossack sabre across the mind's eye. In 'Kavkas' a hundred years of history are woven into the stuff of legends.” Minerva Press, London.
"From the first pages of his novels and the very first notes of his music, the writer and composer Mohydeen Quandour captures our imagination and draws us to this life; at one time drowning us deep into historical events, and then pulling us back to reality and to this world we live in. And we see our own story with his eyes and hear songs of our lives with his ears.” Igor Liapin, First Secretary of the Russian Writers Union.
“Quandour’s new novel “The Last Hunt” is a beautifully written story of the Yeltsin period and the Oligarchs of Russia… entangled in an African safari where the amazing elephant Tukumbala comes to life as a real character in this work…His style is superb but simple and comfortable to read… intricately woven events which keeps you turning the pages of this rather sumptuous book.” Sydney Globe.
