A brief history of Jamaican novelists…

marlon_james_3097758aI recently went to a reading night of Trinidad born novelists and poets. Afterwards, I confessed to writer and musician Anthony Joseph that I had never read a novel from the Caribbean. Two days later, and everybody is talking about whether Marlon James is going to win the Booker Prize. A Brief History of Seven Killings is definitely on my reading list this year. But what about other Jamaican novelists? Marlon James picks them here.
