Jamaica, 1976: Seven gunmen storm Bob Marley's house, machine guns blazing. The reggae superstar survives, but the gunmen are never caught. From this near-mythic event, Jamaican novelist Marlon James spins a dazzling display of storytelling, winning the 2015 Man Booker Prize, the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award, and the American Book Award. Told in many voices and set to a musical beat spanning three decades, it chronicles the lives of scores of unforgettable characters: slum kids, drug lords, journalists, prostitutes, gunmen, even CIA agents. Vivid and inventive, violent and mesmerizing, James's epic is "a vast, ambitious burning mansion of a book" (Sunday Telegraph, London).
