Summary

Novelist Marlon James had his first book nominated as a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and his second book named a New York Times Editor’s Choice. In this, his third novel, a failing preacher in 1957 Jamaica is ousted by a fiery newcomer who sends the congregation into a frenzy of spiritual awakening—and violence.

amazing

The entire book was exceptionally gripping. Raw, beautiful, difficultly, but necessarily, thought provoking. A rewarding challenge but easy to read as each finished chapter ignited a thirst to continue listening.
