"A major work, a glittering combination of brilliant craftsmanship, psychological perception and objective reporting." -The New York Times

"An artful triumph. . . . [The Jewel in the Crown] goes forward with considerable power and urgency. . . . Besides storytelling, Mr. Scott uses his remarkable techniques to portray a place and a time, a society and its social arrangements, that are now history." -The New Yorker "Far more even than E.M. Forster, in whose long literary shadow he has to work, Paul Scott is successful in exploring the provinces of the human heart." -Life "The strength, assurance and stamina displayed in The Day of the Scorpion are quite outstanding. [Scott is a] writer who has thoroughly mastered his material, and who can . . . work through a maze of fascinating detail without for a moment losing sight of distant and considerable objectives." -The Times Literary Supplement "An epic of genius." -Philadelphia Inquirer
