PAUL'S BOOK CLUB / MARCH
Paul's Book Club in March will be reading Augustown by Kei Miller.
Augustown by Workshop graduate, Kei Miller, brings Jamaica in the 1980s to a a lively glow a family's struggle to rise above the brutal vicissitudes of history, race, class, collective memory, violence and myth. Miller brings the language of the Caribbean to life and writes with the beauty of V. S. Naipaul, Jamaica Kinkaid, and Marlon James.
"Miller's writing has a cool immediacy that gives more than a nod to Gabriel Garcia Marquez. A vivid modern fable."—The Guardian
My wife, Ellen, introduced me to this wonderful book and I've been talking it up ever since!
