Reviews

"The Angels' Share is Garfield Ellis's passport to the center of the literary world. Ellis is a writer of tremendous talent with that rare quality that can only be called bigness."
--Colin Channer, author of The Girl with the Golden Shoes

"Ellis inhabits his story of a lost-and-found father and a host of engaging characters and breathtaking incidents with skill, humor, and honesty. A page-turning read."
--Olive Senior, author of Dancing Lessons

"Ellis's compelling novel joins the literature of the Caribbean to bring an exciting new view of our outer and subterranean landscapes whose ghosts are not victims, and whose survivors join a legacy of heroes."
--Rachel Manley, author of In My Father's Shade
