Praise for "How to Escape from a Leper Colony"

"I reached the end of "How to Escape from a Leper Colony "with the exhilarating sense that I had been on the best kind of journey--not, finally, to the Virgin Islands nor Trinidad nor Houston nor London, but to the imagination of a wonderfully talented young writer who has many more stories to tell." --Margot Livesey, "The Boston Globe"

"A few years ago, Tiphanie Yanique wowed us with her phenomenal story collection, "How to Escape from a Leper Colony." Now she brings us this astonishing and wondrous novel.

This book is an absolute marvel."--Ben Fountain, author of "Billy Flynn's Long Halftime Walk"

"It's a tired cliche to call a place a character, but in Tiphanie Yanique's gorgeous debut, St.Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands makes for a textured and fascinating protagonist. At the beginning of the novel, in the early 20th century, the island is in flux as it goes from Danish to American ownership. At the same time, sisters Eeona and Anette find their fortunes changing drastically when their father, Captain Owen Arthur Bradshaw, who's something of a local legend, drowns in a shipwreck. The untouchably beautiful Eeona and the earthy but equally seductive Anette must evolve and fend for themselves as Saint Thomas becomes a tourist hot spot and their dead father's secrets continue to haunt them at every turn--as we're often reminded, it's a small island. Yanique's many artful touches--switched perspectives, deeply idiomatic dialogue, island folklore, strokes of magical realism--are so arresting that it's easy to overlook the mastery involved in intertwining the history of a place and the lives of two unforgettable women."--"Entertainment Weekly"
"In "Land of Love and Drowning," three generations of beautiful Bradshaw women bewitch the men of St. Thomas through the islands' transfer to American control, World War II, segregation and the aftermath of a catastrophic hurricane. Secrets and jealousies shadow the relationship between two sisters and set them apart from other islanders as they all lurch through historical changes. . . . Yanique has written the best kind of summer read--lurid, yet layered and literary."--NPR.org

Reseña del editor:

Recipient of the 2014 American Academy of Arts and Letters Rosenthal Foundation Award

A major debut from an award-winning writer an epic family saga set against the magic and the rhythms of the Virgin Islands.


In the early 1900s, the Virgin Islands are transferred from Danish to American rule, and an important ship sinks into the Caribbean Sea. Orphaned by the shipwreck are two sisters and their half brother, now faced with an uncertain identity and future. Each of them is unusually beautiful, and each is in possession of a particular magic that will either sink or save them.

Chronicling three generations of an island family from 1916 to the 1970s, Land of Love and Drowningis a novel of love and magic, set against the emergence of Saint Thomas into the modern world. Uniquely imagined, with echoes of Toni Morrison, Gabriel García Márquez, and the author s own Caribbean family history, the story is told in a language and rhythm that evoke an entire world and way of life and love. Following the Bradshaw family through sixty years of fathers and daughters, mothers
and sons, love affairs, curses, magical gifts, loyalties, births, deaths, and triumphs,Land of Love and Drowning is a gorgeous, vibrant debut by an exciting, prizewinning young writer.
