Review:

"This Body is about food, fathers and family. Situated in London in the 21st century the story invites the reader to rethink identity in a globalized world, where roots have been replaced by wings for they better symbolize the complex web of relationships that connect us to people and places." Maria van Enckevort, Society for Caribbean Studies Newsletter"
