Praise for Windward Heights

“Condé is a masterly storyteller who also proves deft at reinterpretting other people’s stories, as she shows here with this energetic reimagining of Wuthering Heights here set in Cuba and Guadeloupe at the turn of the century.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Condé gives Brontë a cultural context … a fine and unique accomplishment.”
Washington Post

“Through [Condé’s] transformation of the tragedy in Wuthering Heights, she creates a narrative that seduces, evokes and makes us think about the kinds of emotions that have moved human beings throughout our existence.”
Chicago Tribune

“Exotic and eloquent… Condé takes Emily Brontë’s cold-climate classic on obsessive love and makes it hot and lush.”
USA Today

“A confident and incisive Caribbeanization of a European master-text by a master novelist of African descent.”
Village Voice
“Condé has given readers an astonishing new way in which to contemplate our ancestral past.”
Black Issues Book Review
“The author weaves in the history of the region along with themes of passionate love, color prejudice, oppression, and social unrest to create an engaging and well-written book that is difficult to put down.”
Multicultural Review
