The free Caribbean Debuts Digit features excerpts from four great debut works of fiction in our catalog: Drifting by Katia D. Ulysse, The Night of the Rambler by Montague Kobbé, The Roving Tree by Elsie Augustave (Haiti), and John Crow’s Devil by Marlon James.
American-born artist Chris is forced to reconsider his conception of family during a visit to his mother’s Caribbean homeland.
Kobbé’s hilarious social novel centers on a comically failed business venture on the island of Anguilla, brilliantly echoing A Confederacy of Dunces and Herman Wouk’s Don’t Stop the Carnival.
