Regular price $18.00

JD's Pick:

In this modern epic, Black Leopard, Red Wolf author Marlon James creates another masterpiece delving into disparate peoples, places, times, and the terror they endure. The book follows an ensemble of characters, including assassins, journalists, drug dealers, and ghosts, across times and places of change. Spanning from the slums of 70’s Kingston to the crack wars of 80’s New York, the novel remains close to an ever-changing Jamaica, a source of terror, beauty, and human experience, for James himself as well his characters. With a plot and cast of characters of Dickensian depth and the raw emotion and unfettered vernacular language reminiscent of Zora Neale Hurston, A Brief History of Seven Killings brings us into the tempest.
