    1. "They thought that the time would come when they would live, they would get a chance to be what they saw, that was part of the hope that kept them. But ghostly, ghostly this hope, sucking their jaws into lemon seed, kiwi heart, skeletons of pawpaw, green banana stalk."- Dionne Brand, In Another Place, Not HereIf a favourite poet writes a novel, I'm probably going to read it, especially when the poet is Dionne Brand. I'm writing this review very soon after reading Brand's non-fiction book, "A Map [...]


    2. the first half of this book is prose poetry written in what i can best describe as trinidadian english, because that is the island-english i've heard that most closely approximates the language of this book. maybe it's another island. certainly it's another island. many of the localities have french names. i don't think localities in trinidad have french namesill, it's the caribbean and life is hell and two women love each other but life is hell and something happens to one of them and the other [...]


    3. For readers unaccustomed to the Black Caribbean vernacular that begins Dionne Brand’s 1996 novel In Another Place, Not Here—like me—there’s a bit of an initial hurdle to leap over to sink into this book. But trust me, it’s worth it; and sink in you truly do. Brand is an exhilarating poet and although this is a novel, it’s definitely a poet’s novel. There is something—many things, in fact—deliciously seductive about the language, which rolls, rises, falls, and flows its way thro [...]


    4. Where do I we begin? I like her styleSo richly Brand concocts the Caribbean in image and in manner, that I was able to leave here and delve into that other place. While the words dance away from you, and you attempt to follow their choreography all the while not sure how you ended up on the dance floor at all, she drops you into it like that. Meaning at moments I was lost, as the story slipped by and I tried to regain my bearings.But she is telling our stories mostly heard, seldom written. How g [...]



    5. In Another Place, Not Here is written in such an achingly gorgeous fashion, that if approached with sensitivity and a willingness to immerse yourself into the world provided, which you must in order to finish, it will leave you heartbroken, but transformed. Brand poetically and philosophically writes of love, abandonment, resistance, the emotional liberation and trauma of immigration, global perceptions of blackness within and without of the disapora, exploitation, and the ever elusive elsewhere [...]


    6. Reality, reality and the dreaming of each other's reality and fantasy, a story of two Caribbean women who find refuge in each other in the midst of the turmoil around them. Yes, the stuff of life, but Brand beautifully crafts this story with hints of Fauulkner and Woolf.


    7. Heartbreaking, raw. Brand is a poet and this book is like an extended poem. She writes about same-sex love and revolution, imperialism, slavery, diasporic West Indians. It's so rich.


    8. I am left stunned with the ending of this book. Brand's ability to craft the story with the perfect words allowed me to enter more deeply into the story. Tragic and uplifting. Verlia truly, finally went to another place, and it was not here. The final book for class and I am left stunned.


    9. More poetry than a novel, it was hard to stay focused on the story - definitely a book you should take your time with if you have the opportunity to do so, which I did not!



    10. There are two worlds here in this city where she arrives years earlier with a shoe box of clippings. One so opaque that she ignores it as much as she can - this one is white and runs things; it is as glassy as its downtown buildings and as secretive; its conversations are not understandable, its motions something to keep an eye on, something to look for threat in. The other world growing steadily at its borders is the one she knows and lives in. If you live here you can never say that you know t [...]


    11. "In the middle of everything Elizete asks me why I'm with her. Why I'm with her! This is too much now. I don't want to be responsible like that for anyone. I can't stand the feeling of being attached. I'm trying to finish CLR."This is a love story for sure. Verlia and Elizete are lovers but Elizete "never wanted nothing big from the world" and Verlia has never been able to accept the world as it is. They are both Caribbean women. Elizete, abandoned as a child, ends up working in the cane fields; [...]


    12. Im glad I made it to the end.There were parts of the book that were hard to read because of the author's writing style (ie: prose; streams of conciseness in creole; jarring change of setting/tense etc.). The second half was much easier to navigate than the first and it clarified a lot of the confusion we see in the first half of the novel.I like the subject matter (immigration, blackness, organizing a social movement, love, queer identities, abuse, relationships), but the writer's style was a ma [...]


    13. After the difficult first chapter, i found myself loving this book. It is an atmospheric story of oppression and revolution, love and loss. The descriptions are beautiful and the characters internal lives are laid bare. The problem is that all this beautiful language and internal explorations means that the narrative is sometimes hard to follow, actually sometimes there doesn't seem to be any narrative at all. I did find myself geographically and chronologically confused on more than one occasio [...]


    14. I found this book difficult to read, the language in the first half is very often a bit of a barrier as it is mostly a Carribean dialect or patois. Much of the book approaches stream of consciousness and I found it a struggle to keep up with the characters. That said I did get a strong sense of emotion coming from both the female protagonists, their sense of striving for a better life and discontent with their current situation, their suffering and heartache.


    15. The poetic style of the novel makes it a compelling read. However in the middle, even the magnificent poetry seems inadequate to compensate for a lack of proper story-telling.


    16. This book falls into the category of 'literature that I think is amazing, but that just isn't grabbing me right now.' One to revisit!


    17. I loved the rich Caribbean language in this book. Honestly, I need to read it again, but I feel it was an enjoyable read.


    18. I could never get a flow with this book. The central characters were distant. As a reader I felt like I was in another place, not the story.
