One of the most exciting voices to emerge from the Caribbean, Marlon James won the 2015 Man Booker Prize with A Brief History of Seven Killings. A fictional account of the attempted assassination of Bob Marley in 1976, A Brief History is an ambitious and exhilarating masterpiece that spans three decades. Narrated in multiple voices including killers, con-men, drug dealers and CIA agents, the story captures the tensions, politics, culture and characters of Jamaica with style and energy.
