Breath, Eyes, Memory Reviews


A first novel of precious humanity which mingles past and present, the horrors and delights of Haiti, in a quiet and dignified prose that would be impressive in a writer twice her age. * INDEPENDENT *
Extraordinary... a young and genuinely fresh voice. * TIME OUT ** *
Stuffed with folk wisdom with a sprinkling of urban angst... a vision of female solidarity which transcends place and time. * SUNDAY TIMES ** *
she delicately tiptoes with poetic intent...brief, lyrical, disturbing novel... * MAIL ON SUNDAY *
