"Rody's revisionary literary criticism offers new and persuasive ways to understand the 'renaissance' of African-American women writers and of Caribbean women writers during the past three decades.... Rich in its innovative thinking and...rewarding in its textual analyses.... Will provide grounds for discussion and argument for years to come."--Virginia Quarterly Review
"....A welcome addition to a growing body of criticism examining strategies used by fiction writers of the Americas to explore the lasting effects of New World slavery in the lives of contemporary men and women."--Missippi Quarterly
"The Daughter's Return is a beautiful and brilliant contribution to feminist scholarship."--Signs
"Meticulously researched and admirably lucid in style and argument, The Daughter's Return is an immensely readable as well as an intellectually robust addition to and intervention in the critical response to African American and Caribbean women's writing."--Contemporary Literature
