Caribbean Debuts Digit

Edited by:

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.



Akashic Books’s focus on introducing authors from the Caribbean continues with Haitian author Katia D. Ulysse’s debut work of fiction, Drifting. Over the years, we’ve published a number of Caribbean debuts, and this month’s Caribbean Debuts Digit excerpts four of them: Drifting, The Night of the Rambler by Montague Kobbé (Anguilla), The Roving Tree by Elsie Augustave (Haiti), and John Crow’s Devil by Marlon James (Jamaica).

The paperback editions of The Roving Tree, John Crow’s Devil and The Night of the Rambler are available at a 50% discout on our website, and the e-books of all four titles are available wherever e-books are sold.

The Caribbean Debuts Digit is the latest release in our Akashic Digits (Digital Excerpts from the Akashic Catalog) program. We release a new digit every month, featuring excerpts from front and backlist titles. They’re a great way to explore our catalog more deeply.
