"This is a welcome addition to the field of black feminist writing. Hoving's focus on African and Caribbean women writing in exile deals with some familiar authors, but her theoretical approach and treatment are original and solid, and her clear readings can serve as a model for other critics in the field."--Kathleen Balutansky, St. Michael's College
"Hoving offers rigorous, logical analyses of works by several major modern Caribbean authors. . . . Recommended for upper-division undergraduates through faculty."--Choice
