'Dazzling' GUARDIAN

'Blistering' THE TIMES

'A delight' DIANA EVANS

'Fiction written at the highest level' ANN PATCHETT

'Hilarious, revelatory' MARLON JAMES

An electrifying, hilarious and deeply moving tragicomic debut novel following a Jamaican family grappling with a new life in the US.

'What are you?'

This is the puzzled question that greets a young Trelawny growing up in a Miami where his racial ambiguity is regarded with confusion and suspicion. It's not just his neighbours, his Jamaican parents Topper and Sanya don't seem to understand him either. Then there's his stubborn older brother Delano, who is determined to secure a better future for his own children, no matter what it takes.

As both brothers navigate the challenges littered in their path - a woefully unreliable father, racism, recession and even a hurricane - they find themselves increasingly at odds. Will they make it through together or must one brother's future come at the cost of the other?
