Augustown

€ 13.50

Vividly bringing to life Jamaica in the 1980s, Augustown is a masterpiece of poetic prose that follows one family's struggle to rise above the brutal vicissitudes of history, race, class, collective memory, violence, and myth.

Ma Taffy may be blind but she sees everything. 'so when her great-nephew Kaia comes home from school in tears, what she senses sends a deep fear running through her. A teacher has cut off Kaia's dreadlocks--a violation of his Rastafari beliefs--and this single impulsive action will have ramifications that stretch throughout the entire community. For Kaia's story brings back memories from Ma Taffy's youth, including the legend of the flying preacherman and his ties to the history of Jamaican oppression and resistance--all of which will reverberate forward to the present and change Augustown forever.
