“The voice talent, Miriam Hyman was really excellent. I could clearly tell the difference between characters, plus she enunciates beautifully.”
“In Queen Sugar ……[the novel] is a sensory experience, a tableau vivant that Baszile skillfully paints in a palette simultaneously subtle and bold. Queen Sugar is a bright and enticing reminder that, sometimes, you can go home.”
