Books: Get lost in an epic Jamaican novel

Veröffentlicht am mit Keine Kommentare

PHUKET: Trinidad had V S Naipaul and Jamaica now has Marlon James through his third novel, A Brief History of Seven Killings (Riverhead Books, New York, 2014, 688pp), which is an epic tale of gang warfare in Jamaica, spilling over to Miami and New York and spanning the years 1976 to 1991. Like a Russian novel, a big cast of characters is listed at the front of the book: over 70 gang leaders, gunmen, politicians, journalists, CIA agents, Cuban exiles, Colombian drug lords and Bob Marley, the charismatic reggae star known as The Singer.
