"The gems of [Karodia's] tales are to be found in the often tagic, often comic twists at the end. In 'Crossmatch' Karodia breathes new life into a tale told often and superbly by writers such as Ahmed Essop and Bessie Head."
added by tsarbooks | editThe Sunday Independent (South Africa)
 
"The essence of Karodia's stories is the throb of the human heart—in particular family relationships: about bonds and heartaches that unite or seperate parents and children."
added by tsarbooks | editFinancial Mail (South Africa)
 
“Karodia has taken the writer’s role to new heights in South Africa.”

“…riveting . . . palpable and heart wrenching . . . ”
