A powerful romantic tale of a man driven to evil
Iftekhar ’s book reviews
This story makes light of a serious subject. It could have been a profound commentary on American history and mentality, instead it's just weekend reading for high school kids. Shame and pity.
These are exquisitely confected stories, restrained yet detailed.
A pitiless story of love betrayed by racism, told with the electric tautness of the finest detective story and ending with a damning moral condemnation.
