Om A Brief History of Seven Killings

Winner of Man Booker Prize 2015

'A vivid plunge into a crazed, violent and corrupt world... executed with swaggering aplomb' -- Irvine Welsh 'Scary and lyrically beautiful - you'll want to read whole pages aloud to strangers.' -- Russell Banks 'A brilliant novel' -- Library Journal 'Marlon James's writing can be at once at once punchy and lyrical; can alternate strange, dreamy poetry with visceral action; and can bring persuasive life to a kaleidoscopic range of characters. [This book] showcases the extraordinary capabilities of a writer whose importance can scarcely be questioned' Independent 'Not only persuasive, but tragic, though in its polyphony and scope it's more than that ... the book's increasing sense of absurdity, its pop culture references, its compulsive ventriloquism and its range of tones - comic, surreal, nightmarish, parodic - began to remind me uncannily of David Foster Wallace's all-or-nothing Infinite Jest. ' New York Times Book Review 'It's like a Tarantino remake of "The Harder They Come" but with a soundtrack by Bob Marley and a script by Oliver Stone and William Faulkner...epic in every sense of that word: sweeping, mythic, over-the-top, colossal and dizzyingly complex.' New Y ork Times 'Critics rave about James' mastery of both oral history storytelling and patois dialect, and his ability to craft and juggle perspectives that often contradict and obscure the truth. With comparisons to the works of David Foster Wallace and Quentin Tarantino, James has garnered the highest of contemporary praise.' Wired 10 Best Books of 2014
