Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Paule Marshall has always been that most unappreciated of contemporary American writers—a storyteller. Style, in Marshall's work, is not promoted at the expense of character or plot. She creates people who matter, faced with choices which matter. Here, as in Praisesong for the Widow, her people live and make their choices in the equally exotic worlds of New York and the Caribbean. Pulled between these two magnetic poles is Ursa Mackenzie, daughter of an American-born mother and the charismatic island politician, Primus Mackenzie. Ursa must choose between career and family, dependence and independence, America and Triunion. This is evocative, stirring, physical writing, as befits a storyteller. Marshall knows that to involve our senses is to involve our minds and hearts." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
