  • A magnum opus... Puts the reader at the heart of the horror that came to be called the Atlanta child murders

    Toni Morrison
  • A full-bloodied, important book and an eloquent final testament of a writer whose art was always dictated to by her humanity and sense of justice

    Eileen Battersby, Irish Times
  • These Bones Are Not My Child isn't just a gripping thriller; it's a masterwork of American literature

    Harper's Bazaar
  • Bambara has produced both a human drama and a steely report on contemporary society. . .admirable

    The Times
  • Bambara's achievement - in this masterly work - is to voice this sense of loss, to give full human dimension to events that for too long many of us flashed by like billboards at highway speed

    New York Times Book Review
  • Captures for all time a nightmare of private hate and public racism

    Independent on Sunday
  • A woolly mammoth of a novel, truly worthy of being called an epic, a book with great big feet that sometimes take ponderous steps but that always hit the ground with the sound of thunder

    Chicago Tribune
  • Riveting... A carefully crafted mystery [that is] difficult to put down

    Boston Globe
  • Toni Cade Bambara's writing is so great it lifts you off the ground

    New Statesman
  • Nobody writes with her breathtaking humor, empathy, ferocity, and surrealness... As a writer, her observation and humanity are timeless. As a reader, I release myself into Ms. Toni's sure and steady hands, knowing every part of me will be illuminated by her gaze
