A classic in the making,
This review is from: The White Woman on the Green Bicycle (Paperback)
This is one of the best books I have read in years. It has everything you want from a novel - incredible use of language, fascinating context (Trinidad's emerging independence) and wonderful characters who stay with you long after the book is finished. Along the way it also tackles colonialism, racism, and the realities of a long marriage with intelligence, wit and poignancy. Oh, and the plot's cracking too. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Totally agree. A deeply human story, written with astounding insight. I adored it, and think about it still.
