Reviews

  • A book that the reader devours quickly, ponders slowly, and forgets not at all-Moving and inspiring

    New York Times
  • E.R. Braithwaite's postwar novel about a black teacher fighting to win the respect of white pupils in a school in the East End of London is a milestone in the campaign for racial equality

    Guardian
  • It is the noblest, most moving, least sentimental account of life in a modern school and of a teacher's struggles with his pupils and with himself that I have come across

    Michael Croft, Observer
