"A powerful first novel...writing with assurance and control." New York Times, Editor's Choice "A dynamic, vernacular debut...an exciting read." Publishers Weekly "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)"Reseña del editor:
In the village of Gibbeah - where certain women fly and certain men protect secrets with their lives - magic coexists with religion, and good and evil are never as they seem. In this town, a battle is fought between two men of God. The story begins when a drunkard named Hector Bligh (the 'Rum Preacher') is dragged from his pulpit by a man calling himself 'Apostle' York. Handsome and brash, York demands a fire-and-brimstone church, but sets in motion a phenomenal and deadly struggle for the soul of Gibbeah itself.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.
