About this title


In this tale of identity and nation-hood Cliff evokes a Jamaica full of contradiction and complexity, a country where history and politics are played out in surroundings of overwhelming physical beauty. Slowly the Jamaican diaspora is revealed through the novel's main character, Clare Savage, whose family emigrates to the US when she is twelve... Clare's emotional and physical journey back to Jamaica and a positive , identification of herself as Jamaican -takes the form of a fascinating voyage through the polarities and dualities of race and sexuality, the relationships between the first and third worlds and a slavery and modern patterns of emigration. Cliff powerfully evokes the historical myths and truths of Jamaican and Black Americans, and the beauty and anguish of Modern anguish of modern Jamaica. City Limits Michelle Cliff is a remarkable author Guardian. Vividly and passionately written Financial Times. Potent and very moving Sunday Times
