“Powerful and often lyric … an important work.”
Library Journal

“The beauty and authority of her writing are coupled with profound insight.”
—Toni Morrison

“Her keen eye for detail and pithy anecdotal descriptions bring Jamaica’s present and past to life.”
New York Times Book Review

“Jamaican history, lore, and lanscape are evocatively re-created in this multilayered novel. &#133 Through its richness and diversity of detail, Abeng achieves a timeless universality.”
Publisher’s Weekly

Abeng is a solid achievement, a book that offers a wealth of history and culture. … [Cliff’s] perception of character, her receptivity to sensuous detail, her rendering of the language, make our journey … a richly textured experience.”
