Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Winner of the Somerset Maugham Award! "[Oyeyemi] knows that ghost stories aren''t just for kids. And White Is for Witching turns out to be a delightfully unconventional coming-of-age story. As in Toni Morrison''s Beloved or Chris Abani''s Song for Night , the supernatural elements of White Is for Witching serve to remind the characters - and Oyeyemi''s readers - of horrifying historical circumstances. Oyeyemi clearly appreciates that some crimes (like slavery or genocide or, in this case, institutional racism) are so heinous that the conventions of realist fiction seem woefully inadequate to describe them. She makes us glad to suspend disbelief." -- The New York Times Book Review "Profoundly chilling.a slow-building neo-Gothic that will leave persevering readers breathless." -- The Boston Globe "Appealing from page one. Unconventional, intoxicating and deeply disquieting." -- Publishers Weekly , starred review "Chilling.lyrical. If you''ve been missing Shirley Jackson all these many years, missing the creepy character-driven goodness of We Have Always Lived in the Castle and Hangsaman , here''s a writer who seems to be a direct heir to that lamented one''s gothic throne." -- The Austin Chronicle "Spooky and thought provoking. The Poe-like elements of White Is for Witching are so spookily vivid, from foreboding descriptions of landscape (''The sun was setting into storm clouds; there was smoky brightness outside, as if the world was being inspected by candlelight'') to the eeriness of an enchanted apple (half ''coma white'' and a red that ''glowed like false fire''), that they tend steal the show. But Oyeyemi also has a convincing touch when dealing with ordinary reality. She''s particularly sharp at portraying the inner life of a troubled adolescent and the alienation of immigrants. As adept as she is at the Gothic, Oyeyemi also subverts its conventions. Here white is the colour of bewitchment and evil spells, not black. Yet the palpable aura of claustrophobic dread and menace urges the reader to conclude that the author casts the most powerful spell." -- The Toronto Star "Oyeyemi''s third mystical novel weaves a tale of four generations of women and the house in Dover, England, they''ve inhabited-a vengeful, Gothic edifice that has always rejected strangers. Oyeyemi''s style is as enigmatic as her plot. In all, a challenging read laced with thought-provoking story lines that end, like Miranda''s fate, mysteriously." -- Booklist "[A] remarkable, shape-shifting tale. The narrative oscillates between the mundane and the supernatural, and it is this skilful blend of the fantastic and the everyday that makes it resonate so chillingly. While ghosts may skulk inside the house, the horrors lurking outside are equally alarming. Yet, for all this trickery, Oyeyemi''s writing is vividly emotional. In the end, this isn''t a fantasy about ghosts and witches. It is really about memory and belonging, love and loss." -- New Statesman "Superbly atmospheric. [a] mesmeric exploration of alienation and loss. This eloquent narrative delivers grandly on the promise of Oyeyemi''s startling debut. Oyeyemi''s languid cadences are more burnished, her sinuous ideas more firmly embedded in the fabric of this disturbing and intricate novel. The dark tones of Poe in her haunting have also the elasticity of Haruki Murakami''s surreal mental landscapes. White is for Witching has the subtle occlusions of her previous two works with a tenacious undertow, drawing the reader into its deeper currents." -- The Independent "Oyeyemi is a writer who moves easily between the literary, the demotic and the supernatural. She is sharply amusing on the strangeness of the ordinary world. Already her technical skill as a novelist is remarkable, her range of reference formidable and her use of language virtuosic." -- The Daily Telegraph "A weirdly compelling mix of modern gothic, matriarchal magic and.
