  • Eleanor Morse captures the magic of the African landscape and the terror and degradation of life under apartheid in White Dog Fell from the Sky . . . tense and heartfelt

    O Magazine
  • Magic, friendship, the tragedy of apartheid and the triumph of loyalty are recounted in poetic, powerful prose by this unconventional and intelligent writer. Shattering and uplifting

    Kuki Gallmann, author of I Dreamed of Africa
  • There are not enough adjectives to describe the strength of this story . . . Eleanor Morse's story is emotionally riveting, heartbreaking, and at times unbearable, while simultaneously embracing hope, insight, and a sense of perpetual mystery . . . Each sentence is more beautiful than the last

    NY Journal
  • Exceptional . . . Morse writes with passion and lyricism as she conveys hope and resilience in the face of terror

  • Morse's third novel . . . weaves together Isaac and Alice's stories in strikingly vivid scenes laced with lyrical language. Her sentences are short, flashing with colour, choked by dry dust, made tense by thunder and slaked by long-awaited rain . . . This is a portrait of longing that speaks less about the state of Africa and more about moral and political blindness, grief and courage

    Sunday Express
  • She's not a showy writer, beckoning the reader into her world through character and incident rather than ambitious descriptive passages. Unflinchingly frank about the horrors of South Africa under apartheid . . . a novel with at least one love story at its heart, balancing cruelty and tenderness

    The Herald
  • A heartfelt, unforgettable picture of life in the time of apartheid
