I like to read authors of areas that I visit, so picked this up a few years ago when we were sailing in Jamaican waters... I just got around to reading it. I was very pleasantly surprised by these stories. Each is very different but still a window into life in the last couple decades on the island. Good writing and I look forward to reading more of her work with the expectation I haven't had since finding J Lahiri in the New Yorker...
