It's a magnificent achievement - and - the best compliment one novelist can give another, made me jealous SMALL ISLAND is a great read, delivering the sort of pleasure which has been the stock-in-trade of a long line of English novelists. It's honest, skilful, thoughtful and important - Guardian What makes Levy's writing so appealing is her even-handedness. All her characters can be weak, hopeless, brave, good, bad - whatever their colour. The writing is rigorous and the bittersweet ending, with its unexpected twist, touching... People can retain great dignity, however small their island - Independent on Sunday
A superb collection of writing from multi-award-winning, million-copy bestseller Andrea Levy.See all Product description

This short collection of short stories demands to be read slowly with significant pauses after each story to digest the content.
I have read a few novels by this author and was interested to see what points of interest she would bring out in the short stories. The stories are collected from different times in her writing career but all focus around the issue of immigration and are all little gems. The book is prefaced by an "essay" where the author gives some background of her life and the influences on her writing. I've heard her being interviewed a few times so this was all familiar but good to hear again.
This book comes across as a very personal selection in which Andrea Levy opens up her heart to the reader.
