"It's all here: exceptional dialogue, clever narrative, and a rich story that tells us something new about our shared history on a planet that is increasingly small and yet will always be inhabited by individuals possessed, at our best, by singular consciousness and desire." --Star Tribune (Minneapolis) "There is a great skill in the way she presents characters and dialogue; she has powers of observation and an ear for language that make her books a pleasure to read." --Times Literary Supplement (UK) "Andrea Levy gives us a new, urgent take on our past." --Vogue "A perfectly crafted tale of crossed lives and oceans . . . Happily, the hype is warranted--Small Island is a triumph." --San Francisco Chronicle "Andrea Levy's beautifully wrought novel is a window into 1948 England. . . . A bristling, funny, angry tale of love and sacrifice." --Entertainment Weekly "Levy tells a good story, and she tells it well--using narrative voices across time and space as she revisits the conventions of the historical novel and imagines the hopes and pains of the immigrant's saga anew." --The Washington Post "Familiar cultural observations in closely observed and surprising lives . . . Levy's writing deftly illuminates the complex and contradictory motives behind each character's behavior." --The New Yorker
