“In these kaleidoscopic stories of Jamaica and its diaspora we hear many voices at once. some cultivated, some simple, some wickedly funny, some deeply melancholic. All of them shine.”—Zadie Smith

Named one of Entertainment Weekly’s “Hot Summer Reads of 2018” and BuzzFeed’s “Summer Books to Get Excited About”

Tenderness and cruelty, loyalty and betrayal, ambition and regret—Alexia Arthurs navigates these tensions to extraordinary effect in her debut collection about Jamaican immigrants and their families back home.
