"Someone rare has written this very fine novel, a writer with the liveliest sense of life and the warmest, most authentic humour. A touching book; and so funny, so likeable"
Truman Capote||"There is humour as well as tragedy in this book, besides its faint note of hope for human nature; and it is delightfully written in the now familiar Southern tradition"
Sunday Times||"Her book is lifted...into the rare company of those that linger in the memory..."
Bookman||"No one ever forgets this book"
