Review

"David Dabydeen's new novel takes as its starting point Hogarth's painting of 1732...and sets out to release the people it represents - prostitute, merchant, quack doctor and slave boy - from easy moralism, both the artist's and our own... Dabydeen has an imaginative mastery of the period, and can render it a hundred ways." - Observer

"Exhilarating...Beguiling and provocative." - The Times

"The best of the younger generation of Caribbean novelists." -  Penelope Lively
