Reviews
A rewarding and tense novella . . . This novella signals the arrival of a talent matured.-- "Publishers Weekly"
Channer has become one of the most significant literary figures in the Caribbean.-- "Globe and Mail (Canada)"
Colin Channer continues to charm and surprise us. The Girl with the Golden Shoes takes us on a very moving and mesmerizing journey.--Edwidge Danticat, author of The Dew Breaker
Colin Channer is a graceful, natural storyteller with a keen eye and sharp ear. He effortlessly evokes the sense of a place and a people in strong yet subtle strokes. And Estrella is a magnificent heroine, a woman for her time. This is a captivating tale.--Diana Abu-Jaber, author of Crescent
The Girl with the Golden Shoes is literary magic of the best kind. Each new character, each new sentence is deceptively simple, imbued with the same astonishing possibility as the best folk tale. A sharp and relevant look at class and race, this book is one of the best I've read this year.--Joe Meno, author of Hairstyles of the Damned
