Praise for Breath, Eyes, Memory

  • 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
