How to Love a Jamaican - Alexia Arthurs

Staff Pick

In this outstanding debut collection, Arthurs weaves together stories of home—whether characters are longing for the intricacies of their homeland, returning to a forgotten one, or seeking familial ties to an unknown place. Spoken from a variety of perspectives, Arthurs reflects on the trials of interracial relationships versus black love, isolating cultural differences, and the forlorn experience of dreaming of, but not wanting, a partner and kids. Life in beautiful Jamaica, or the memory of it, is the thread that ties each story together. This collection is filled with hurt and sorrow, but also much joy—a great summer read.
