Reviews

'Feels contemporary and necessary, exploring how religion can be used as justification for mankind's deepest urges'. * Press Association *
'A relentless excavation of an isolated village in which sex, violence and Jesus form a combustible trinity of catalysts and salves'. * New Statesman *
`Dense, lyrical and richly over the top'. * Sunday Times *
'Introduces us to his extraordinary talent...James jumps effortlessly between cut-glass English that would not disgrace Jane Austen, and the ripe, flexible, witty language of his childhood. Superb'. * The Times *
'James's slice of Caribbean gothic has terrific power and verve: it's quite a debut'. * Financial Times *
'John Crow's Devil is undoubtedly breathtaking for its imagination and its storytelling'. * Independent *
`A powerful first novel ... Writing with assurance and control, James uses his small-town drama to suggest the larger anguish of a postcolonial society struggling for its own identity.' * New York Times Book Review *
`A writer whose importance can scarcely be questioned.' * Independent *
