This review is from: The Longest Memory (Paperback)
Having read this book I was not at all surprised to find that Fred D’Aguiar is an award-winning poet; he is a master of making every word earn its place. This book would be an excellent text for study in literature classes, at school or university level. I read it today and know that I could read it tomorrow and get more from it, but it is so well-written that if you just want to read the surface story you will find it an easy read and you will not be disappointed.
