The Dead Yard
A Story of Modern JamaicaBook - 2011
Details the most famous aspects of Jamaica, the music and its culture, as well as the Island's history, including the slave trade operated by Britain. Since independence in 1962, Jamaica has acquired a twin image as a resort-style travel Eden and as a new kind of Hell, presided over by drug lords. In seeking to answer the question of what lies between, the author talked with Jamaicans who are trying to make a difference: writers, priests, and musicians.
