Editorial Reviews

Joseph Featherstone
"Few writers in America or anywhere else have matched Miss Porter's powers of deep poetic concentration, her intelligence, her responsiveness to the inner life of her characters, her sharp sense of the pressing forces of history, nationality, and social atmosphere." -- The New Republic
V. S. Pritchett
"Miss Porter's singularity as a writer is in her truthful explorations of a complete consciousness of life. Her prose is severe and exact; her ironies are subtle but hard...Her power to make a landscape, a room, a group of people, thinkingly alive is not the vague, brutal talent of the post-Hemmingway reporter but belongs to the explicit Jamesian period and suggest the whole rather than the surface of a life....She is an important writer in the genre because she solves the essential problem: how to satisfy exhaustively in writing briefly." -- New Statesman
