Reviews

"Throughout this stunning portrait of Trinidad's multicultural diversity, and one family's sacrifices, soaring hopes and ultimate despair, Adam weaves a poetic lightness and beauty that will transfix readers."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Adam's writing is luxuriant, evoking the atmospheric island setting and the complicated, worried lives lived under a near-constant sense of impending violence...Heartbreaking and lovely, this is an important work by a promising new voice."--Booklist (starred review)

"Fascinating...an incisive and loving portrait of contemporary Trinidad."--Kirkus

"This book manages to combine two things rarely bound together in the same spine: a sensitive depiction of family life and the page-flicking urgency of a thriller."--The Guardian

"This is a tough, original novel of remarkable poise and confidence."--The Economist

"Golden Child is a beautiful and haunting tale, one that leaves readers thinking long after the last page has been turned."--Associated Press

"Golden Child is a stunning novel written with force and beauty. Though true to herself, Adam's work stands tall beside icons of her tradition like V.S. Naipaul."--Jennifer Clement, author of Gun Love

"Golden Child swells with wisdom about masculinity, family, violence and sacrifice. I read it in a sitting, gripping the pages, nails chewed down by the final word. An intense, heart-breaking debut."--Daniel Magariel, author of One of the Boys

"The characters in Golden Child are so completely real that I keep forgetting that their home is the page; they seem to breathe and think on their own. This is a devastating, wonderful book, and I can't help but wait impatiently for whatever Claire Adam writes next." - Sara Taylor, author of The Lauras

"Utterly convincing, horrifying and, ultimately, intensely moving, it's almost impossible to believe this small masterpiece is a first novel. Adam is a true and rare talent. I'm in awe."--Julie Myerson, author of The Stopped Heart
