Product description

Review

-This is one of those literary works of which it can be said that not a word should be changed.-
--Booklist *Starred Review*
-Lord's debut, a retelling of a Senegalese folktale, packs a great deal of subtly alluring storytelling into this small package.-
--Publishers Weekly *Starred Review*
-Adventure, mystery, familial relations, discourse of power, ananse, the spirit world.---Kamau Brathwaite (Born to Slow Horses)
-Drawing on a multicultural melange of narrative traditions--both oral and written--this Barbadian author surprises. She tap dances across the conventional, using it to make spirited sounds.-
--Foreword Reviews
-Lord weaves fantasy into an implied history of the world to reflect on the use of power and human choice.---Carl Brandon Society Blog
