Review:

'Gordimer has undoubtedly become one of the world's greatest writers' -- Independent

'Gordimer is the real thing: by which I mean a true writer of graphic power, palpitating sensibility, and high and persistent emotional voltage' -- Observer

'Her rootedness in a political time, place and faith has never dimmed her complex gifts as an artist' -- Independent

'The symbols Gordimer holds up are good for all times and all places, reminding us of our universal humanity' -- New York Herald Tribune
