Product description

Review

'With grace, authenticity and humour, Young lets Jamaica's political history shine through the life story of her charming yet fallible hero. Brilliant' (Daily Mail)

'A pacy but absorbing saga of domestic struggle and gangland manoeuvring set against the violent backdrop of postwar Jamaican politics ... [A] punchy tale of pungent characters and impassioned entanglements' (Independent on Sunday)

'In pages of patois-inflected prose, Pao celebrates the islands vibrant ethnic mix up ... [Pao] confirms Young as a gifted new writer. Her novel is a blindingly good read in parts, both for its mesmeric story-telling and the quality of its prose' (Observer)

'Young's heartfelt, sparky and affecting debut novel is a chronicle of multicultural Jamaica .... The complexity of Jamaican society in Pao is fascinating and bewildering' (Guardian)

Book Description

A richly imagined, wholly engrossing and utterly captivating novel that tells the remarkable history of twentieth century Jamaica
