UK Kirkus Review » This novel weaves together Shakespearean (specifically The Tempest) parallels with 17th- and 18th-century life on a Caribbean island and London in the 20th century. The established descendants of those who exploited the island are forced to confront the way in which African slaves and Indians were made the bedrock of their wealth. The bare bones of the story, however, do nothing to convey the literally fabulous quality of the writing, in which archetypes and symbols are made flesh. (Kirkus UK)
