The incredible debut novel from 2015 Man Booker Prize winner Marlon James "A powerful first novel...?riting with assurance and control, James uses his small-town drama to suggest the larger anguish of a postcolonial society struggling for its own identity." -New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice) "Elements coalesce in a Jamaican stew spicier than jerk chicken. First novelist James moves effortlessly between lyrical patois and trenchant observations...?t's 150-proof literary rum guaranteed to intoxicate and enchant. Highly recommended." -Library Journal (*starred* review) This stunning debut novel tells the story of a biblical struggle in a remote Jamaican village in 1957 with language as taut as classic works by Cormac McCarthy and a richness reminiscent of early Toni Morrison. Marlon James was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1970. His second novel, The Book of Night Women, a New York Times Editors' Choice, was released in 2009 to widespread critical acclaim. Currently a professor of literature and creative writing at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, he divides his time between Jamaica, New York City, and the Twin Cities.
