What was life like for the gangs of New York and others thrown into the nineteenth-century slammer?
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.
Katia D. Ulysse (Mouths Don’t Speak) will appear on a panel entitled “Fiction: International Stories, Shared Humanities,” alongside Adrienne Benson (The Brightest Sun) and Annabelle Kim (Tiger Pelt), discussing international disasters, resilience, and the heartbreaking impact on interwoven lives. The event will take place in Central JMRL Library.
