Review quote

"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
