Review:

The distillation of her life and craft. . . . Nowhere is her prose more supple, more assured.--Sara Paretsky

Working a stylistic range from moody introspection to formal elegance, Miss Rhys has us traveling under Antoinette s skin. It is an eerie and memorable trip."

A considerable tour de force by any standard. . . . A triumph of atmosphere.

A considerable tour de force by any standard A triumph of atmosphere."

The distillation of [Rhys's] life and craft Nowhere is her prose more supple, more assured.--Sara Paretsky"

Review:

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