Synopsis: Written with lyrical fire in a chorus of vividly rendered voices, Dionne Brand's second novel is an epic of the African diaspora across the globe. It begins in 1824 on Trinidad, where Marie-Ursule, queen of a secret slave society called the Sans Peur Regiment, plots a mass suicide. The end of the Sans Peur is also the beginning of a new world, for Marie-Ursule cannot kill her young daughter, Bola -- who escapes to live free and bear a dynasty of descendants who spill out across the Caribbean, North America, and Europe. Haunted by a legacy of passion and oppression, the children of Bola pass through two world wars and into the confusion, estrangement, and violence of the late twentieth century. "[Brand has] a lush and exuberant style that may put some readers in mind of Toni Morrison or Edwidge Danticat." -- William Ferguson, The New York Times Book Review; "A delicately structured, beautifully written novel infused with rare emotional clarity." -- Julie Wheelwright, The Independent (London); "Rich, elegiac, almost biblical in its rhythms . . . One of the essential works of our times." -- The Globe & Mail (Toronto)

From the Back Cover:

"One of the essential works of our times.--Rich, elegiac-- nothing short of brilliant." -The Globe and Mail

"Sensuous--wildly lyrical--wonderful.-- Extremely impressive in the range of its characters and situations.-- It is an unforgettable world [that] pierces the imagination." -The Toronto Star

"Rich and vibrant--Dionne Brand continues to wrestle with her restless poetics in an effort to forge a language bold enough for the big ideas she likes to cram into her fiction--Sensuous, sometimes hallucinatory prose.--Brand's is a voice both brave and beautiful." -NOW

"Extraordinary.-- Dionne Brand--exults in the power of language and deploys it to lure us from harsh reality to metaphysical heights--The prose, so close to poetry, [is] almost musical." -National Post
