Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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

"…tough, unflinching…hauntingly beautiful. The novel creates a rich world…" --Philip Marchand, the Toronto Star

"Brand draws us into a fierce, incendiary plantation world, a lush, dense revolutionary zone…through the sheer force of her imagination wills an obscured history back to life." --The Montreal Gazette (4/3/99)

"…a brilliant work. Like all her writing, Brand’s work here is dense, beautiful and sure, but what makes this work even bigger again is her evocation of an intricately connected past and present." --Georgia Straight ( 8/8/99)

"…At the Full and Change of the Moon is simply a beautiful, frightening and engaging book...[A] powerful novel." --Books in Canada (30/7/99)
