{Literary Reviews}

"Ms. MacLean's debut novel illuminates the difficulty of racial identity and the chaos it can create.The narrative deftly investigates racism beyond simple black and white figures. This astutely delicate dramatization of race relations dotted with ghosts,sex scenes and rambling in New Orleans and abroad can be thrilling .The story provides a worthwhile glimpse at how startling the answers to questions of heredity can be." Kirkus review

"With a fluid and truly elegant style, and the controversial subjects of race as well as reincarnation,the talented Marie-­Madeleine MacLean has brilliantly created a sinfully entertaining novel with the full force of intelligence behind a frightening drama. This is indeed a brilliant debut novel and certainly an instant classic..."
Literary Literary and creative Artists

"Race" is a thrilling,thought ­provoking and highly imaginative novel which succeeds at feeling original due to its heady mixture of reincarnation,ghosts,family secrets,violence and sensuality, in the disparate worlds of London and New Orleans.Even more impressive is that all these elements unite into a coherent whole,anchored by deep themes and a set of colorful,compelling characters.Combining Christian angels with Voodoo Gods,makes for an interesting and truly original supernatural cocktail which helps recast familiar Christian iconography in a fresh way, that makes readers look and think about the world in a different way."
