Reviews

"This is one of those literary works of which it can be said that not a word should be changed."
--Booklist *Starred Review*

"Lord's debut, a retelling of a Senegalese folktale, packs a great deal of subtly alluring storytelling into this small package."
--Publishers Weekly *Starred Review*

"Adventure, mystery, familial relations, discourse of power, ananse, the spirit world."--Kamau Brathwaite (Born to Slow Horses)

"Drawing on a multicultural mΓ©lange of narrative traditions--both oral and written--this Barbadian author surprises. She tap dances across the conventional, using it to make spirited sounds."
--Foreword Reviews

"Lord weaves fantasy into an implied history of the world to reflect on the use of power and human choice."--Carl Brandon Society Blog
