Ghosts by Curdella Forbes

Written by Chelsea McGill for The Globally Curious on Sunday, April 10th, 2016

'What unifies this book is the beautifully lyrical writing, which slides smoothly between standard English and Jamaican creole. This is not something I had seen before, so it took me longer to read the book because I often had to figure out the meaning of the words or phrases. But this is a good thing; each sentence is so beautiful that it just asks you to read slowly, savoring every turn of phrase. I highly recommend this novel for its beautiful, unique writing – even if I still don’t quite know what it all means.'
