Sasha Knight by Sean Godfrey

Rights for Film and TV, translation, audio and stage are available

A coming-of-age novel, alternating between past and present and shifting back and forth from Jamaica and the United States, Sasha Knight picks apart the puzzle left behind when eleven-year-old Sasha disappears. Everyone seems convinced she has simply run away but her best friend, Matthew refuses to believe it.

Sasha Knight portrays the perils of toxic masculinity and the damaging effects of emotional trauma. Touching 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. 

‘A brilliantly absorbing read with indelible characters’
