“Seldom in recent years have I been so deeply impressed by a first novel as by Alastair Bruce’s visionary and profound Wall of Days [...] The remarkable achievement of Wall of Days is that [its] gathering conundrum never becomes part of an abstract or philosophical debate, or a ‘mere’ postmodernist game, but is fully embedded in the facts of a riveting and overwhelming story, told by a consummate storyteller who appears well set to become a defining novelist of our time.” (Andre Brink)

"Boy on the Wire … might be one of the most important literary works to come from the pen of a South African author … in a number of years." (Jennifer Crocker, Cape Times)
