Praise

“The beauty and authority of her writing is coupled in a rare way with profound insight.”
—Toni Morrison

“Mesmerizing … possesses the incantatory power of poetry.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Structurally ambitious and innovative, making tangible through its form a vivid, spiraling tension between past and present … a triumph of artistic integration, a hard-won harmony between the political and the personal, between realism and the mysteries of the spirit.”
Washington Post Book World

“I am in awe of Michelle Cliff’s achievement. The work is lyrical, intelligent, full of a moral passion kept taut and spare and absolutley unsentimental. The range of her knowledge, insight, and compassion is astonishing.”
—Janette Turner Hospital

“A tour de force. I very much admire what she does with language, and the fact that she’s struggling with central issues of our time. A powerful book, truly a stupendous achievement: the complex sense of Jamaica with its anguish and its beauty. In her generation, Cliff is rare and is already distinguished as a writer of great substance and power.”
—Tillie Olsen
