Reviews

'every page gifts you her far seeing, her calm and intelligent urgency, the wisdom and relief of her articulacy, her courage' * Ali Smith *
Arundhati Roy is one of the most confident and original thinkers of our time -- Naomi Klein
Arundhati Roy calls for 'factual precision' alongside of the 'real precision of poetry.' Remarkably, she combines those achievements to a degree that few can hope to approach -- Noam Chomsky
Arundhati Roy combines her brilliant style as a novelist with her powerful commitment to social justice in producing these eloquent, penetrating essays -- Howard Zinn
The scale of what Roy surveys is staggering. Her pointed indictment is devastating * New York Times Book Review *
Arundhati Roy is one of the few great revolutionary intellectuals in our time . . . courageous, visionary, and erudite -- Cornel West
Her incomparable divining rod picks up the cries of the despised and the oppressed in the most remote corners of the globe; it even picks up the cries of rivers and fish. With an unfailing charm and wit that makes her writing constantly enlivening to read, her analysis of our grotesque world is savagely clear, and yet her anger never obscures her awareness that beauty, joy, and pleasure can potentially be part of the life of human beings -- Wallace Shawn
Roy is of course a consummate storyteller...[the essays] are thick with intelligence and firmly bolstered with fact. * The Observer *
