Reviews

"A masterpiece, [which leaves] more conventional treatments of the Holocaust, such as Schindler's List, looking obtuse and sentimental" * The Times *
"William Styron's Sophie's Choice is a landmark of mid-20th-century American fiction - an impressively fat novel that most literate Americans claim to have read even if they haven't" * Sunday Telegraph *
"A compassionate, brilliantly written novel" * The Times *
"A weighty, passionate novel . . . courageous [and] masterly" * NY Times *
"Styron is a writer's writer, capable of setting a pastoral idyll in Brooklyn, and the traumas narrated occur alongside a classic American coming-of-age story" -- Xan Brooks * Guardian, 1000 novels everyone must read *
