Antoinette Cosway is a Creole heiress, the product of an inbred, decadent, expatriate community, a 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 his mind against her.

Product Description:

Wide Sargasso Sea


Compelling, painful and exquisite (Guardian)

Brilliant. A tale of dislocation and dispossession, which Rhys writes with a kind of romantic cynicism, desperate and pungent (The Times)

Rhys turns a menacing cipher into a grieving, plausible young woman, and one whose story says whole worlds about global mixtures, about the misunderstandings between the colonized, the colonizers and the people who can't easily say which they are (Time)
