Product description

Review

Every scene is rich in implication, entrancing and disturbing at the same time; the literary equivalent of a switch-back ride (The Sunday Times)

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 cracking good read' (Margaret Forster)

'A great read...honest, skilful, thoughtful and important' (Guardian)

'Explores the Caribbean experience of immigration to Britain with great sensitivity' (Independent)

'Wonderful...seamless...a magnificent achievement' (Linda Grant)

'Never less than finely written, delicately and often comically observed, and impressively rich in detail and little nuggets of stories' (Evening Standard)

'An engrossing read - slyly funny, passionately angry and wholly involving' (Daily Mail)

'A work of great imaginative power' (Linton Kwesi Johnson)

'As full of warmth and jokes and humanity as you could wish' (Time Out)

'Gives us a new urgent take on our past' (Vogue)

Book Description

In this delicately wrought and profoundly moving novel, Andrea Levy handles the weighty themes of empire, prejudice, war and love, with a lightness of touch and a generosity of spirit that challenges and uplifts the reader.
