I read the splendid Women's Review of Books treatment of your wonderful new book devoted to Claudia Jones. Congratulations! The reviewer was knowledgeable but also felt she had to highlight some "shortcomings" because, I think, she so failed in her own early efforts to even come close to your scholarship and interpretation.  Never mind that, though; it is a stunning fine review that can only enhance the book, its brilliant author, and its subject's place in history. A job well done, as usual, Carole Boyce Davies!
