GUIDES TO THE BEST PLACES TO EAT ON THE STREET

Guides to the Best Places to Eat on the Street Outdoors is a good place to be in the Caribbean. The scenery’s good, the weather is even better. But best of all, outdoors, on the street, is where the really good food comes from. On sidewalks and beaches, under shop awnings or in stalls, balanced with great skill on heads and bicycles, street food is everywhere. No frills, no cutlery and no service charge; this is the food West Indians miss when they’re far from home. If you’re not afraid of missing out on the tourist brochure version (or of getting your hands dirty), here’s a guide to eating your way across the islands.

By identifying with a legacy which goes beyond the five hundred years of colonial life, the Caribbean peoples can begin to bind together as a region and claim a rich inheritance from the earliest cultural expressions which emerge in this volume.

Volume II New Societies: The Caribbean in the Long Sixteenth Century Editor: Professor Peter Emmer

The subject of this volume is the evolution of Caribbean society through the intrusion of Europeans, and it examines the dramatic changes in politics, society and culture which occurred until 1680. These changes are studied in conjunction with the rapidly dwindling presence of the Amerindians and the increasing numbers of Spanish, English, French and Dutch settlers.

Volume III Slave Societies of the Caribbean Editor: Professor Franklin Knight

The slave societies were more than societies with enslaved Africans, so this volume examines the demographic and economic as well as social and cultural aspects of all those communities which resulted from the establishment of the Caribbean slave systems. Paperback | 16 plates | 400pp | 9780333656051 Hardback | 9780333656044

NEW

Volume IV begins with the initiation of a ‘free’ society after slavery was abolished. Slavery and its destruction form merely a background. It follows that the different parts of the Caribbean region enter the picture effectively only when they leave slavery behind. Then after firmly establishing freedom the story moves naturally to the time of the First World War and the substitution of the United States for the Europeans in the role of overlord. Paperback | 712pp | 9780333724576 Hardback | 9780333724569

Volume V The Caribbean in the Twentieth Century Editor: Professor Bridget Brereton

The prevalence and persistence of the plantation, the ubiquity of underemployment, the vulnerability of dependent Caribbean economies, popular and labour protests, decolonisation and neo-colonialism are all considered in this volume. Paperback | 792pp | 9780333724590 Hardback | 9780333724583

Volume VI Methodology and Historiography of the Caribbean Editor: Professor Barry Higman

Volume VI looks at the ways historians have written the history of the region depending on their methods on interpretation and differing styles of communicating their findings. The second half of the volume describes the writing of history in the individual territories. The final part of Volume VI is a full and detailed bibliography which serves not only as a guide to the volume, but also as an invaluable reference for the UNESCO General History of the Caribbean series as a whole.

But the road to international acclaim has not been a straightforward one. Born James Chambers into an underdeveloped country town near Jamaica’s north coast, Cliff has battled poverty, controversy, and prejudice – indeed, his starring role as Ivan in the ground-breaking film The Harder They Come drew on aspects of Jimmy’s own youthful experiences. In this unauthorised biography, David Katz draws on extensive interviews conducted with the artist and his peers, as well as press archives and other sources, to give a unique insight into the maturing of a man, a talent, and a nation.

The most thrilling and controversial cricketer of his generation, Brian Lara is a hero to millions worldwide.

Sadly for Lara he rose to prominence just as the great West Indies team of the 1980s plateaued and began its downward trajectory. During the ensuing tumultuous decline Lara shouldered the weight of the batting and the hopes of a region, but his bat was not the only thing that bristled. A strong-minded man, his frequent brushes with authority on the best course for progress meant he was seldom out of the headlines. Through in-depth interviews with former international players, coaches, teachers, neighbours, friends and family members, new light is shed on this brilliant but complex man; a true Caribbean hero who still has many chapters to write.

FICTION, LITERATURE & POETRY

THE ANTHONY C. WINKLER COLLECTION

‘A his work fizzes with an exuberant delight in the speech, manners and customs of the island underclass. And ‘All tthe books tangle frankly - and uproariously - with the taboos of race, colour and class… It’s almost as if P.G. th Wodehouse had strolled into the world of Bob Marley.’ W Boyd Tonkin, The Independent B

This unmissable collection from the acclaimed Jamaican writer, famed for his hilarious, ‘out of order’ writing, T brings together his critically acclaimed classics, as well as his eagerly anticipated new novels and autobiography. b Anthony C C. Winkler was born in Jamaica, and was educated in Jamaica and America. His first novel, The Painted Canoe, was published in Jamaica in 1984. The Lunatic followed in 1987, and Winkler also wrote the screenplay for a highly successful film of this novel. In addition to his autobiography (Trust the Darkness: My Life as a Writer), other works include The Great Yacht Race (1992), Going Home to Teach (1995), The Duppy (1997), Dog War (2006) and Crocodile (2009). In 1999 his original screenplay The Annihilation of Fish, was filmed in Los Angeles. Starring opposite James Earl Jones with Margot Kidder, Lynn Redgrave won Palm Beach Best Actress for her role as Poinsettia.

Trust the Darkness: My Life as a Writer Anthony C. Winkler

‘Much as I enjoyed The Lunatic, one of the funniest books ever written, Tony’s autobiography defines him so distinctly it has become my favourite … It explains his pugnacious personality, his occasional lewdness, his shrewd and tender insight into human behaviour which he evokes with such skill.’ Laura Tanna, The Sunday Gleaner

Anthony C. Winkler has been called “the unrivalled master of comic writing in the West Indies”. Many readers regard his novel The Lunatic as among the funniest books in any language. Teeming with the offbeat occurrences and character types found in his fiction, Trust the Darkness is a supremely entertaining chronicle of a life full of hardships and rewards, one often lived on the very edge of darkness. Hardback | 472pp | 9780230026049

Crocodile Anthony C. Winkler

Crocodile tells the story of Josephine Hemp, a simple but devout Catholic housemaid who feels abused and abandoned by God. To get revenge, she captures a consecrated host which, under the ancient Church doctrine of transubstantiation, is not merely a symbol of the Godhead, but the actual living God miraculously contained in what seems to the unbelieving naked eye a mere wafer. This sprightly fable exploring the incalculable extent to which believers are often driven by their faith, is played out with impeccable logic against the Jamaican countryside. Its resolution will both surprise and delight. Hardback | 288pp | 9781405063739

Dog War Anthony C. Winkler

‘Winkler has a fine ear for patois and dialogue, and a love of language that makes bawdy jokes crackle.’ The New Yorker

‘Winkler’s wit, his ear for dialect and the sublime creation that is Precious add up to one howlingly funny book.’ Publisher’s Weekly

In a highly original take on Jamaican life, Winkler, the Caribbean’s unrivalled master of adult comedy, introduces the estimable Precious, a large-bottomed, meltingly juicy Christian Jamaican woman with unshakeable ideas on the right and proper behaviour for Christian Jamaican women, their husbands, and men and dogs in general. But when her husband dies unexpectedly, Precious finds her ideas on proper behaviour assailed on every side. Obliged to get a job as a dog-maid, Precious is outraged to discover that most improper of all are the attentions of her mistress’s preposterously pampered pet, Riccardo.

FICTION, LITERATURE & POETRY The Lunatic Anthony C. Winkler

‘The author never relaxes his hilarious examination of the island’s taboos … By far the funniest book I’ve read in a decade, although its ribald atmosphere is sprayed with the pepper-gas of aggressive social satire.’ Bob Shacochis, Washington Post Book World

Aloysius is the village madman, tolerated by neighbours but forced to eke out a living by doing odd jobs while he uses the hospitable woodlands for shelter. He is starved of human companionship; instead he has running conversations with trees and plants. Then love, or a peculiar version of it, comes to Aloysius in the form of a solidly built German lady who has come to Jamaica to photograph the flora and fauna. Her name is Inga Schmidt. But the romantic idyll is bruised when Inga invites a local butcher to join a ménage a trios, and shattered when the trio decides to burgle the house of Busha McIntosh… Paperback | 256pp | 9781405068819

The Duppy Anthony C. Winkler

‘Winkler’s gift for storytelling, his keen ear for the Jamaican language and his unparalleled sense of humour all come through in The Duppy.’ Barbara Nelson, Caribbean Voice

Baps, a Jamaican shopkeeper, drops dead unexpectedly one Saturday morning and finds himself being transported to heaven via a crowded minibus. Everything about heaven that he had been raised to expect and believe, he finds to be utterly and completely wrong. Baps tells the tale of paradise that suspiciously resembles Jamaica in many ways. The Duppy is a fantasy that challenges every preconception about death and the afterlife.

The Painted Canoe

Paperback | 184pp | 9781405068840

Anthony C. Winkler

‘This is one of those rare novels that announces its presence with such modest grace that the size of its ambition and accomplishments steals gently into the consciousness.’ Michael Thelwell, Washington Post Book World

The Painted Canoe is the story of a poor, ugly Jamaican fisherman who falls asleep one night on a fishing trip and wakes up to find his small craft surrounded by the empty horizon with no land in sight. What follows is a heartfelt story of his fight for survival against the sea, in which fate is pitted against fate, irrationality against rationality – all amidst hilarious displays of eccentricity – as Zachariah determinedly battles against the odds for survival.

Going Home to Teach

Paperback | 328pp | 9781405068802

Anthony C. Winkler

‘In Going Home to Teach Winkler’s strength as a writer lies in the vividness of his descriptions, the power of his imagery, and the range of his vocabulary…’ Elaine Reynolds, The Sunday Observer

This autobiographical account of the year Winkler spent at a rural teacher training college flashes back to the Jamaica of the narrator’s childhood. Emerging from the story are the hilariously drawn characters, contrasts between the Jamaican and the American outlook, and the lessons about the perils of superimposing a foreign ideology onto a native culture. Paperback | 328pp | 9781405068833

The Great Yacht Race Anthony C. Winkler

the Anthony C. Winkler Collection titles are 196 x 129mm. ‘Winkler manages to combine mockery with benevolence, accuracy with absurdity and the hard facts of life with a shot of magical humour … this is the work of a master storyteller.’ Susan Knight, The Caribbean Review of Books

Murders, scandals and the pursuit of forbidden pleasures may help to while the time away, but for Montego Bay’s elite in the 1950s nothing is as important as the annual yacht race. Winkler interweaves the lives of five Montegonians, all of whom will eventually compete in the race, with Father Huck, the American priest who miini mini nist ist sterrs ov over er the hem an hem and d ttrrie es hi his be his best st tto o unde unde un d rs rsta tand ta n the nd hem, m, whi hile hile e batttl tlin in ng wi w th h hiss o own w ccon wn on o nfl flic iccts ts..

MACMILLAN CARIBBEAN WRITERS

The Macmillan Caribbean Writers series offers a range of writing, not only in novels, novellas and short stories but also in plays and poetry. Importantly, it provides a forum for new literary talent — introducing the work of the next generation of Caribbean writers as well as classic favourites and new work by more established authors. Macmillan commissions Caribbean artists to produce the front cover illustrations, which give the series a distinctive and dynamic appearance.

POETRY Poems by Martin Carter Edited by Stewart Brown & Ian McDonald

As a young socialist in the colony of British Guiana, Martin Carter wrote strong, vigorous poems that connect powerfully with the reader. A committed freedom fighter for his people, “welding my flesh to freedom” with his pen, Carter was known as the Poet of Resistance, and today is recognized as one of the great poets of the region, if not the world. 136pp | 216 x 138mm | 9781405069472

Ian McDonald: Selected Poems

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2009 ROYAL SOCIETY OF LITERATURE ONDAATJE PRIZE

SELECTED IN THE CARIBBEAN REVIEW OF BOOKS 2008 BOOKS OF THE YEAR

Introduction by Edward Baugh

‘McDonald has written fine poems in every period of his adult life ... His great virtues as a poet are his notable narrative skills; a fundamental decency; a habit of respect and compassion; and openness to people, society, and the natural world, which he often renders memorably.’ Mervyn Morris, The Caribbean Review of Books

Ian McDonald is South America’s equivalent of Robert Frost; a poet writing in a young country who, with an open heart and in clean, honest language, has set down its characters and events, its landscape, traditions and myths, for future generations to discover. This selection by Edward Baugh, published for the poet’s seventy-fifth birthday, sets the poems from McDonald’s four collections in chronological order for the first time. 136pp | 196 x 129mm | 9780230028715

NOVELS Alonso and the Drug Baron Evan Jones

‘Jones has crafted a compact tale of an ordinary man of extraordinary capabilities caught up in very extraordinary circumstances, with a liberal dose of humour, a few strokes of sex, wry winks at race and several crucial insights into Jamaica…’ Mel Cooke, The Gleaner

Inoffensive and harmless, Alonso finds himself arrested, kidnapped, shot at, on the run and feigning madness. To cap it all, someone lands a plane on his head. The only way Alonso can hope to return to his pleasantly idle life as nightwatchman is to find out the true facts of Chin Lee’s death and so persuade Authority to exonerate him. 208pp | 216 x 138mm | 9781405031752

MACMILLAN CARIBBEAN WRITERS

FICTION, LITERATURE & POETRY

...and the Sirens Still Wail Nancy Burke

‘Nancy Burke’s book is a must-read. Her style is unique and compelling. She writes beautifully and from her heart.’ Barbara Nelson, The Sunday Gleaner

It wasn’t the volcano’s increasingly violent fiery explosions that drove New Yorkers Nancy and Richard out of their beloved Montserrat. It wasn’t the swift, incinerating pyroclastic flows that killed every living thing in their path. It wasn’t even the hot rocks hurtling onto the roof of their house. It was the ash. It was the thick blanket of ash that covered everything. But there were no planes flying and no boats willing to turn Noah’s Ark, until the skipper of the M V Abiding Love came to the rescue. Or did he? 176pp | 216 x 138mm | 9781405017039

Brother Man Roger Mais

‘Brother Man is an amazing novel because it foreshadows the coming of age of the Rastafari movement in Jamaica. In so doing, it becomes more than a passion play and achieves the status of classic Caribbean literature.’ Bob Berlinghof, Caribbean Compass

Originally published in 1954 and acclaimed around the world as one of the classics of Caribbean fiction, Brother Man is the tragic story of an honest Rastafarian healer caught up in a web of intrigue and betrayal in Jamaica’s tough West Kingston slums. It’s a story of compelling mythic power that has stood the test of time. 192pp | 216 x 138mm | 9781405062961

The Festival of San Joaquin Zee Edgell

‘A very fine addition to the canon of novels from the Caribbean by women and to the literature of the region itself.’ The Caribbean Writer

Luz Marina, jailed for the murder of her violent husband, returns to her home village, hoping to leave the past behind and win back custody of her children. But first she must reckon with the ill-will of her former employer and mother-in-law, the wealthy landowner Doña Catalina, who plots to ruin Luz Marina’s chances of rebuilding her life. This novel, set among the mestizo Spanish communities of rural Belize, gives a sympathetic and moving portrait of peasant life. 192pp | 196 x 129mm | 9780230029910

For Nothing At All Garfield Ellis

‘For Nothing At All, has been rapturously received in Jamaica; this poignant, unsettling book should be read by anyone who wishes to understand this beautiful, bedevilled island.’ Ian Thomson, The Times Literary Supplement

Wesley was the bright one, the one out of all of his friends who was going to do well. But as the years passed the friends grew apart, forced by circumstances along dark paths of corruption and death, devotion or madness, leaving their sunlit dreams in tatters. When Wes graduated with the best results the school had ever seen, he couldn’t get a job. Even so, he seemed like the only one with a chance, not trapped by the system. Until Danny Bruck moved in on him. 184pp | 216 x 138mm | 9781405066396

MACMILLAN CARIBBEAN WRITERS

John Crow’s Devil Marlon James

‘Elements coalesce in a Jamaican stew spicier than jerk chicken. It’s 150-proof literary rum guaranteed to intoxicate and enchant. Highly recommended.’ Library Journal (starred review)

This stunning debut novel tells the story of a biblical struggle in a remote Jamaican village in 1957. With language as taut as classic works by Cormac McCarthy, and a richness reminiscent of early Toni Morrison, Marlon James reveals his unique narrative command that will firmly establish his place as one of today’s freshest, most talented young writers. 232pp | 196 x 129mm | 9780230034884

Molly and the Muslim Stick David Dabydeen

‘…it’s rare to read a novel so ambitious, so tautly written, so able to survey a personal and historical landscape mired in horror and from it to divine otherworldly pathways that hint at the possibility of redemption.’ Sukhdev Sandu, The Telegraph

David Dabydeen’s gentle insistence that only pity can cleanse away the crimes of history, and the magical transformations enacted by his jewelled and sumptuous prose, ensure the reader’s bewitchment throughout this rich and strangely wrought, marvellous tale of human suffering and redemption. 184pp | 196 x 129mm | 9780230028708

Power Game Perry Henzell

NEW

‘A novel which is as essential to understanding Jamaican culture as is Henzell’s celebrated film The Harder They Come … Grows more addictive with each page.’ Chris Salewicz, Face Magazine

A Caribbean Island is up for grabs, and there are five who plan to grab it! MARK BERHARD controls the army, WINSTON BERNARD controls the banks, MICHELLE controls the media, EDDIE controls the cash in the ganja trade and ZACK controls the streets. Each believes that when the crucial moment comes, what they have will give them complete control.

MACMILLAN CARIBBEAN WRITERS

She’s Gone Kwame Dawes

FICTION, LITERATURE & POETRY

2008 HURSTON/WRIGHT LEGACY AWARD WINNER – DEBUT FICTION

‘In summary, it all sounds simple enough, but the detailed intricacy of the plot and Dawes’ sheer writing skill make it anything but ... She’s Gone is a human tale, with all the attendant foibles, much like a song that is never the same as it was recorded in the studio. It may be better, it may be worse.  In this case it is better.’ Mel Cook, The Sunday Gleaner

She’s Gone delves into the enigmatic challenge of two virtual strangers trying to negotiate the difference of culture, nationality, class and gender. If it is a love story it is one marked by the harsh realities of human existence revealed in the songs of Bob Marley and the cool sensual intelligence of Milan Kundera. 320pp | 196 x 129mm | 9780230534988

Rum Justice Jolien Harmsen

‘The narrator factors in questions of ‘them’ and ‘us’ - simmering issues of class and race - which come together to provide the makings of an explosive situation, and this superior thriller has a nice feel for some of the subtleties of Caribbean realities.’ Colin Rickard, She Caribbean

The disappearance of local water taxi driver Smiley does not make world news headlines. But when a rich American couple are arrested for his murder and risk receiving the death penalty, the international media jump on the case and diplomats go to work. Can justice prevail in a case where international influence and emotions run so high? 392pp | 196 x 129mm | 9781405099059

The Girl with the Golden Shoes Colin Channer

‘Macmillan Caribbean Writers continues to deliver fictional treasure from the archipelago. This fable-like novella finds a sparky female Candide in Estrella Caribbean ella ... The Caribb bb bea ean an tragi-comedy of class and colour finds a richly eloquent voice in this pin-sharp sharp innocent abroad.’ Boyd Tonkin, The Independent

The Girl with the Golden Shoes tells the story of Estrella Thompson, a 14-year-old forced to fend for herself when she is banished from the isolated fishing village where she has lived all her life. Her crime? Wanting to read and write. Her aim is to get to Europe, which means that she has to get a job – which means that she has to get a pair of shoes… and she’s never worn a pair in her life. 136pp | 196 x 129mm | 9780230028920

The Humming-Bird Tree Ian McDonald

Alan was too young to understand why his parents preferred him to play with the other white boys on the estate. But gradually he learned that if he was going to meet Kaiser and Jaillin, he had to pretend he was going to meet someone else, he had to pretend he didn’t enjoy spending time with his friends, he had to pretend he didn’t mind when he wasn’t allowed to invite them to his party. Sometimes, horribly, the pretending became real, and Alan found himself in betrayal of the friendship that meant so much to him. 200pp | 216 x 138mm | 9781405024686

MACMILLAN CARIBBEAN WRITERS

This Body Tessa McWatt

‘A gem of a contemporary novel taking us on the narrator’s journey of self-discovery. We share the heightened consciousness experienced in a love affair of the past bringing golden moments, pathos and pain into the present. The tone is measured, accepting, purposeful but mysterious.’ Jennie Pink, New Books Magazine

Set in London, Toronto and Guyana, This Body is a rich and moving portrait of great depth and authenticity conveying secrets that usually remain untold — those of desire, loss, identity, and of love lost and found. 344pp | 196 x 129mm | 9781405094061

Trouble Tree John Hill Porter

‘...I found it one of those rare, can’t-put-down, sleep-deferring reads ... I congratulate John Hill Porter and commend Trouble Tree to all Barbadians who value a good story, well told.’ Peter Simmons, Sunday Sun

Who shot Ben Cumberbatch in the head, and why? Who killed his father? Were the two murderous assaults connected? And how did Ben’s Bajan uncle Clarence come to fall off a cliff? Was the fire that razed Glenville House caused by accident - or by arson? Would Ben ever recover his memory and work out why his harmless family was being slowly eliminated, one by one? 336pp | 196 x 129mm | 9781405071055

The Voices of Time Kenrick Mose

‘As much about building as about leaving, about return as about loss, The Voices of Time is a poignant and haunting saga of early twentieth century Trinidad. The funny episodes, the telling details and the complicated emotions of these interlocking lives leave an indelible impression.’ J. Michael Dash, Professor of Caribbean Literature at New York University

In this rich and memorable novel, the twentieth-century history of Trinidad forms the backdrop to an evocative, sometimes harrowing, family saga: the story of three generations of the ill-starred Greenidge clan during their dogged rise from colonial poverty to middle-class affluence. 224pp | 196 x 129mm | 9781405066389

Walking Joanne Haynes

‘This is the work of an exciting emergent Caribbean writer. I look forward to reading more publications from her fluent pen.’ Helen Pyne Timothy, Founding President of Caribbean Women Writers and Scholars

As a child, Jo was disliked. Children teased her, no-one wanted to be her friend.Teenage Josephine wasn’t afraid of anyone, and she had more friends than she knew what to do with. She had discovered her sexual attraction. Her popularity with the boys soared, while her exam grades plummeted. But Jo still wasn’t happy. Not until she found success in creative expression was Josephine able to overcome her subconscious fears and commit to happiness. 200pp | 196 x 129mm | 9781405067812

SHORT STORIES The Annihilation of Fish and Other Stories Anthony C. Winkler

‘…Winkler’s collection of short fiction landed like a heavyweight comeback…With its dry yet rollicking Jamaican wit, it was not the West Indian humour to which we had become accustomed.’ Anu Lakhan, The Caribbean Review of Books

It was the foul play that caused the annihilation of Fish, when the Devil was shot in the thick of a wrestling match. And there was only one way for the referee to put things right. With another murder. Death stalks the pages in this darkly comical and occasionally tragic collection of stories, which is set partly in Jamaica, partly amongst the Jamaican Diaspora of the United States. 176pp | 216 x 138mm | 9781405026390

Chutney Power and Other Stories Willi Chen

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2007 COMMMONWEALTH WRITERS’ PRIZE BEST BOOK AWARD

‘Chutney Power is a tribute to this writer’s skill in presenting a vivid portrait of a particular communi community …Chen’s beautifully balanced prose rides on the peaks of his Creole words and achieves a kind of lilting splendour.’ Mary Hanna, The Sunday Gleaner

There is no other writer in the Caribbean like Willi Chen. Most of his stories, whether comical or darker in tone, focus on the simple, earthy lives of the poverty-line rural East Indian community, conjuring the smells, textures, sounds and flavours of the Trinidad countryside. 168pp | 216 x 138mm | 9781405029735

Fear of Stones and Other Stories Kei Miller

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2007 COMMMONWEALTH WRITERS’ PRIZE BEST BOOK AWARD

‘His deep compassion for the humble and his whimsical sense of humour di distinguish ti i h hi his writing. ii Miller is a born writer who offers a wide range of experience to his readers, but who is always profoundly Caribbean in his approach and selection of voice.’ Mary Hanna, The Sunday Gleaner

This haunting collection of stories is peopled mainly by rejects of society, sad and lonely souls trying to come to terms with, to survive in, antagonistic circumstances. But love blooms in the most unexpected places, amongst the misfits there are fighters. And for all the hardship there is laughter. 168pp | 216 x 138mm | 9781405066372

Under the Perfume Tree Various

‘This fine collection in all its provocative charm will transport you from the numbness of forgetfulness to the bittersweet sensations of our Caribbean realities’ Paul H. Williams, The Sunday Gleaner

Under the Perfume Tree, titled after Proust’s revelation of fragrance as a catalyst for memory, traces West Indian memories back over a span of five hundred years. Each mesmerising story, with its unforgettable cast of characters, opens a window onto the way people from all walks of life have carved out their daily lives to meet the challenges of the region. 328pp | 216 x 138mm | 9781405065184

What you will notice is Rhone’s own inimitable baritone, his careful enunciation, and his pitch-perfect comic timing.’ Lisa Allen-Agostini, The Caribbean Review of Books

Published here for the first time, Bellas Gate Boy is a hilarious, autobiographical account of the late playwright’s drama-filled path from being a ‘country boy’, the youngest of twenty-three children in the rural environment of Bellas Gate, to becoming the pre-eminent Jamaican dramatist of his generation. 56pp | 196 x 129mm | 9781405031165

FICTION, LITERATURE & POETRY

Hamel the Obeah Man Anonymous (First published in 1827) With a new introduction by Amon Saba Sakana and notes by John Gilmore

While it would appear that this early example of Caribbean fiction is a novel that was intended to prop up the system of slavery and white supremacy in which it is based, the character of Hamel takes on a life of his own, becoming an eloquent critic of the system he so ambiguously defends. And it is Hamel, the Obeah man himself, a highly complex, wise and powerful black man, who keeps the reader (and the other main players in the novel) guessing throughout whose side he is on and has been credited with the first Black Power speech in literature. Paperback | 456pp | 196 x 129mm | 9780333919385

The Locations of George Lamming Edited by Bill Schwarz

George Lamming, one of the towering figures of Caribbean letters, has been a tireless advocate for the full sovereignty of the region for the past half-century. The Locations of George Lamming brings together scholars and critics who present a unique reading of Lamming’s imaginative reach. From a range of disciplinary angles, the contributors explore the historical formations represented by Lamming. By exploring the aesthetic and political components of his extraordinary corpus, they aim to locate Lamming in relation to the histories and predicaments of our times. Paperback | 208pp | 216 x 138mm | 9781405067829

Woman Take Two A play in three acts Telcine Turner

Love and greed — these are two elemental passions Telcine Turner deals with in this exciting three-act play. Set in The Bahamas, it tells the tale of a few people forging alliances for themselves — for love and / or money. Suspenseful and intriguing, Woman Take Two provides a glimpse into the darker side of the human character. Paperback | 96pp | 216 x 138mm | 9780333637067

The White Witch of Rosehall NEW EDITION Herbert G. de Lisser

‘Nearly 80 years after it was first published in 1928, Herbert de Lisser’s classic tale of murder, mayhem, witchcraft and the slave rebellion of 1831 in Jamaica, The White Witch of Rosehall, still holds an awe-inspiring fascination for readers who enjoy horror stories based (so it’s said) on a true story.’ Anne Hilton, Newsday

Robert Rutherford becomes an overseer at Rosehall, the property of a young widow, Mrs. Palmer, whose three husbands have all died in suspicious circumstances. She takes a violent fancy to Rutherford, who is also embarrassed by the attentions of his housekeeper, Millicent. Millicent defies Mrs. Palmer and threatens her with the powers of an Obeah man. Mrs. Palmer, herself skilled in Obeah magic, puts a spell on the girl, which the Obeah man is powerless to remove. Paperback | 272pp | 196 x 129mm | 9781405085922

GUIDES TO THE BEST PLACES TO EAT ON THE STREET Outdoors is a good place to be in the Caribbean. The scenery’s good, the weather is even better. But best of all, outdoors, on the street, is where the really good food comes from. On sidewalks and beaches, under shop awnings or in stalls, balanced with great skill on heads and bicycles, street food is everywhere. No frills, no cutlery and no service charge; this is the food West Indians miss when they’re far from home. If you’re not afraid of missing out on the tourist brochure version (or of getting your hands dirty), here’s a guide to eating your way across the islands.
