Caryl Phillips, acclaimed British Caribbean writer, is the author of The Lost Child (2015), a new novel that interweaves a retelling of the life of Heathcliff-- the brooding, dark-skinned orphan of Emily Brontë’s classic Victorian novWuthering Heights--with a modern-day English tale of racism and interracial romance. Kirkus Reviews called it, "Gorgeously crafted and emotionally shattering." A fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, Phillips twice received the Commonwealth Writers' Prize.
