Praise

“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
