Reviews

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
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.
