The Same Earth

by Kei Miller - £8.99  Orion Publishing Co (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780753823118 | ISBN 10: 075382311x

In the small Jamaican village of Watergate a thief stirs - no fewer than three pairs of Tessa Walcott's panties have gone missing. When Imelda Richardson suggests forming a Neighbourhood Watch to curb the crimewave, she couldn't possibly have forseen the trouble it would lead to - from Pastor Braithwaite, from Evangelist Millie, and from God Himself.
As a hurricane hits Watergate, the river swells and floods Imelda's house, and she leaves the village armed with one small suitcase and an angry heart - though not for the first time. Imelda's first exodus had been to a cold, unfamiliar England, to the home of ganja-growing rebel Purletta Johnson and into the arms of fake Northerner Ozzie...

"Humorous, bittersweet fiction, combines the fantastical realism of Marquez with the domestic comedy of Andrea Levy...Miller is a name to watch."
