How to Love a Jamaican

by Alexia Arthurs - £8.99  Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781509883622 | ISBN 10: 1509883622

"In this thrilling debut collection Alexia Arthurs is all too easy to love."
(Zadie Smith)
Tenderness and cruelty, loyalty and betrayal, ambition and regret – these are the tensions at the heart of Alexia Arthurs’ debut book about Jamaican immigrants and their families back home. Some stories ask big questions about the things that define a person, others explode small moments of deep significance and lasting effect. Sweeping from close-knit island communities to the streets of New York City, How to Love a Jamaican offers a portrait of a nation, a people, and a way of life.
 
Vibrant, lyrical and intimate, this collection of eleven short stories shows Alexia Arthurs to be one of the most dynamic and exciting young authors writing today. It includes the story ‘Bad Behavior’, for which she won the Paris Review’s Plimpton Prize.
