Product description


A Globe and Mail Best Book

"Goodison is one of the best writers -- Canadian, Jamaican or otherwise -- you've probably never heard of. This should change with the publication of By Love Possessed, a virtuosic collection of short stories that...will likely stand among the best books released in 2011."
— National Post

"Halfway through Goodison's stunning collection, By Love Possessed, I realized I was holding my breath. . . .Goodison's alchemy of standard and Jamaican English locates us deep within the consciousness of her people. "
— Donna Bailey Nurse, Globe and Mail

From the Hardcover edition.
