Anmeldelser

«A masterpiece, [which leaves] more conventional treatments of the Holocaust, such as Schindler's List, looking obtuse and sentimental»

The Times

«William Styron's Sophie's Choice is a landmark of mid-20th-century American fiction - an impressively fat novel that most literate Americans claim to have read even if they haven't»

Sunday Telegraph

«A weighty, passionate novel . . . courageous [and] masterly»

NY Times

«Styron is a writer's writer, capable of setting a pastoral idyll in Brooklyn, and the traumas narrated occur alongside a classic American coming-of-age story»

Xan Brooks, Guardian, 1000 novels everyone must read
