Editorial Reviews

Review

“A considerable tour de force by any standard… A triumph of atmosphere.”
- New York Times Book Review

“The distillation of [Rhys's] life and craft… Nowhere is her prose more supple, more assured.”
- Sara Paretsky, “You Must Read This,” NPR

“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.”
- The Nation
