"Miraculously good." -- Kate Saunders The Times "Grant's salty sweet memoir...is inflected with the Jamaican patois spoken by his parents, and is a classic of its kind." -- Nicholas Shakespeare Daily Telegraph "White won the Novel prize for literature in 1973 but has been poorly neglected since; perhaps [this book] will help put the record straight." -- Claire Allfree Metro "To read it now is like encountering a new work by, say, William Faulkner." -- Nicholas Shakespeare Daily Telegraph "Assured and finely textured." -- Oliver Dennis Literary Review
Patrick White’s long-suppressed first novel, published for the first time in seventy-three years.
