I have a really long layover in Atlanta on the way to CN on July 7th and I anticipate some reading on the beach. I'd love to read some fiction set in Jamaica or some interesting non-fiction on Jamaican history/culture/etc. Any recommendations? Does anyone have The Rough Guide to Jamaica? Is it worth it if you are going to an AI resort? I'm looking at these books:
The Harder They Come - Michael Thelwell
It Begins with Tears - Opal Palmer Adisa
Abeng - Michelle Cliff
Jamaica Me Dead - Bob Morris
The Book of Jamaica - Russell Banks
Any thoughts on these books? Others?
