  • Arundhati Roy is one of the most confident and original thinkers of our time

    Naomi Klein
  • Arundhati Roy calls for 'factual precision' alongside of the 'real precision of poetry.' Remarkably, she combines those achievements to a degree that few can hope to approach

    Noam Chomsky
  • Arundhati Roy combines her brilliant style as a novelist with her powerful commitment to social justice in producing these eloquent, penetrating essays

    Howard Zinn
  • The scale of what Roy surveys is staggering. Her pointed indictment is devastating

    New York Times Book Review
  • Arundhati Roy is one of the few great revolutionary intellectuals in our time . . . courageous, visionary, and erudite

    Cornel West
  • Her incomparable divining rod picks up the cries of the despised and the oppressed in the most remote corners of the globe; it even picks up the cries of rivers and fish. With an unfailing charm and wit that makes her writing constantly enlivening to read, her analysis of our grotesque world is savagely clear, and yet her anger never obscures her awareness that beauty, joy, and pleasure can potentially be part of the life of human beings
