Congratulations to Robert Antoni, whose latest novel, As Flies to Whatless Boys, has been shortlisted for the 2014 OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature!
The November 10, 2013 issue of the New York Times features five Akashic authors: Lucian Perkins, Bernice L. McFadden, Edwidge Danticat, Colin Channer, and Elizabeth Nunez!
The Caribbean is, above all, a sentiment, a rhythm, a way of life. In this respect, I grew up in a place that is both essentially Caribbean and, at the same time, desperately seeking to avoid its Caribbean nature . . .
