Listener Opinions

    " A portrait of three black men in British history. Interesting subject matter, but the story doesn't really draw you in the way some Caryl Phillips stories do. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Nate | 3/25/2008

    " Three separate historical fiction pieces about a black man's fall from grace. Caryl Phillips makes impressive style changes and creates human faces for the history of British race relations. "
