Upscale Magazine by Kim Allison Backer: 2006-04-02
  • Race, class, mysterious locales and family secrets combine and conflict in Unburnable (Harper Collins, $23.95). Dominica-native Lillian Baptiste flees the island as a teenager when she realizes and recollects her scandalous history and, in shame and fear, refuses to return for two decades. Lillian heads back to Dominica when she realizes that her incomplete life cannot move forward unless she comes to terms with her past and resolves to confront her ghostsó living and dead. In her steamy debut novel, Marie-Elena John uses her intimate knowledge of Caribbean culture to craft a fascinating and occasionally frightening tale.
