Reviews
Forbes provides an eclectic, feverish vision of Jamaican 'history' from the 1950s to the present glimpsed through the experiences of an abandoned mystic-child named Moshe, whose translucent skin and mismatched eyes defy racial category. Who he is and who he becomes--like the country itself--is a riddle that unfolds in episodic bursts and linguistic flourishes.-- "Vanity Fair, one of the Best Books of 2019"
A mesmerizing love story that takes place over 50 years in Jamaica.-- "O, the Oprah Magazine"
Forbes's ambitious, fantastic tale will appeal to fans of multigenerational sagas.-- "Publishers Weekly"
A powerful journey into the souls of two lovers, two countries, and the people caught in the wakes of empires.-- "Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review"
A meditation on colonial legacy.-- "Travel + Leisure"
