SASHA KNIGHT by Sean Godfrey – OUT NOW
This debut novel picks apart the puzzle left behind when 11-year-old Sasha disappears. It alternates between past and present, shifting back and forth from Jamaica and the United States.Portraying the perils of toxic masculinity and the damaging effects of emotional trauma, it touches on religion and the deep-seated class and colour divide in Jamaican society. This is a genre-bending mashup that shakes the senses and tears at the heart.
