Review:

"A striking novel that pushes you dizzily into another time and place... Reading it is like being in the middle of a vibrant dream" ( Sunday Times)

"Phillips points up the hypocrisy and humiliation of a society at breaking point; revealing it with subtlety, humour and humanity" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Caryl Phillips has proved himself to be among the best and most productive writers of his generation...with Cambridge he takes a firm step towards joining the company of the literary giants of our time" ( New York Times)

"This powerful, seductively readable book, set in a 19th century slave plantation, finally puts the sickening realities of the slave trade firmly on the map" ( Guardian)

"Phillips is a linguistic and cultural virtuoso" ( The Times)

Book Description:

Dramatic and challenging novel about freedom and prejudice by the winner of the Commonwealth Writers Prize.
