PRAISE FOR MALLA NUNN

Reviews

Blessed Are The Dead

‘Historical hindsight may make readers a bit more self-congratulatory about recognizing the evils of apartheid, but it won’t help them see around the curves Nunn has plotted or rise above her insight into the enduring dilemmas of her separate-and-unequal world.’

Kirkus Reviews

A Beautiful Place To Die

‘A terrific debut! Page-turning, clever and multi-layered in its portrayal of the people and landscape of apartheid South Africa. I loved it.’

Minette Walters

Let The Dead Lie

‘Malla Nunn deftly balances suspense and deduction as she offers a revealing glimpse into South African society under the segregation laws promulgated by the ruling National Party.’

Publisher's Weekly, starred review

A Beautiful Place To Die

‘Malla Nunn excels at the swift evocation of people and place … Not a word is wasted … Breath-catching … Unforgettable and a talent to watch.’

The Sydney Morning Herald, Critics’ Choice Best Book of 2008
