About the Author
Praise For Brown Girl in the Ring…
"Excellent...a bright, original mix of future urban decay and West Indian magic...strongly rooted in character and place."
-Sunday Denver Post
"A wonderful sense of narrative and a finely tuned ear for dialogue...balances a well-crafted and imaginative story with incisive social critique and a vivid sense of place."
"An impressive debut precisely because of Hopkinson's fresh viewpoint."
-The Washington Post
"Hopkinson lives up to her advance billing."
-New York Times Book Review
"Hopkinson's writing is smooth and assured, and her characters lively and believable. She has created a vivid world of urban decay and startling, dangerous magic, where the human heart is both a physical and metaphorical key."
"Splendid....Superbly plotted and redolent of the rhythms of Afro-Caribbean speech."
"Utterly original....the debut of a major talent. Gripping, memorable, and beautiful."
-Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club
