How to Love a Jamaican



In this thrilling debut collection Alexia Arthurs is all too easy to love' – Zadie Smith

A riveting exploration of a nation's heart and soul, How to Love a Jamaican sees Alexia Arthurs weave profound stories of Jamaican emigrants and the complex bonds tying them to their families back home.

From close-knit Jamaican communities to bustling New York streets, this evocative collection paints an intimate, nuanced portrait of immigrant experiences. It includes the story ‘Bad Behavior’, for which Arthurs won the Paris Review’s Plimpton Prize.

Filled with both tenderness and cruelty, ambition and regret, How to Love a Jamaican is a compelling examination of identity, culture, and the nuances of human disposition.
