Produktbeschreibung

WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2015

JAMAICA, 1976

Seven gunmen storm Bob Marley's house, machine guns blazing. The reggae superstar survives, but the gunmen are never caught.

From the acclaimed author of Black Leopard, Red Wolf and The Book of Night Women comes a dazzling display of masterful storytelling exploring this near-mythic event. Spanning three decades and crossing continents, A Brief History of Seven Killings chronicles the lives of a host of unforgettable characters - slum kids, drug lords, journalists, prostitutes, gunmen and even the CIA. Gripping and inventive, ambitious and mesmerising, A Brief History of Seven Killings is one of the most remarkable and extraordinary novels of the twenty-first century. 

Kritik

'A vast, ambitious, burning mansion of a book, designed to reflect all the languages of its teeming island and the chambers of the human heart'
Irish Independent
