Written in a magnificent prose style that matches the art it describes (Bernadine Evaristo The Guardian)
Like Cazabon, we fall in love numerous times with this complicated world, full of prejudice and social injustice. Scott, born on a sugar estate, knows this society intimately and paints this world with skill and grace. (Monique Roffey Independent)
A beautiful subtle and sensitive novel (David Evans FT)
In this intimate, compassionate portrait of 19th century Trinidad, Lawrence Scott presents a gripping tale of a world burdened by its secrets and exposed by its art. (Earl Lovelace)
Accomplished ... Scott's book is more than just a fanciful biography, with the author exploring a wide range of issues, from race to sexual equality. Throughout it all the writing is magnificent. (Fachtna Kelly Sunday Business Post 2013-07-14)

The depictions of the actual paintings were so hypnotic that I was grieving that it was all imagination untiI I finished the book and discovered that MJ Cazabon was real. Having googled the paintings I can see why the author wrote this book...they are magnificent.
I studied the history of art and am ashamed not to have heard of this wonderful artist. Thank you for the discovery.
