9780140028782: Wide Sargasso Sea

Antoinette Cosway is a Creole heiress - product of an inbred, decadent, expatriate community - a sensitive girl at once beguiled and repelled by the lush Jamaican landscape. Soon after her marriage to Rochester rumours of madness in the Cosway family poison Rochester's mind against her.

Review:

The novel is a triumph of atmosphere of what one is tempted to call Caribbean Gothic atmosphere It has an almost hallucinatory quality. "

About the Author:

Jean Rhys was born in Domenica in 1890 but came to London when she was sixteen. She began to write after the first of her three marriages broke up, but without any particular success, perhaps because her writing was decades ahead of its time. Nearlytwenty years after her books had gone out of print, she made a sensational re-appearance in 1966 with WIDE SARGASSO SEA, which won the Royal Society of Literature Award and the WH Smith award. She died in 1979.
