From the Back Cover:

“As a book about the partiality of family history and the peculiar spells of memory, The Book of Colour could hardly be bettered.” -- Observer

“Wandering through dreams and nightmares from Praslin Islands to Mauritius and finally to England, the author unfolds the troubled lives of her forebears, cursed by racial prejudice, sexual inhibition and recurrent mental illness. This is a powerfully and carefully written expurgation of personal feelings, drawing the reader into a landscape like that of a Dali painting.” -- Scotland on Sunday

From the Trade Paperback edition.
