Reviews

"A travelogue of love and scholarship. . . . [It] does the region splendid justice." --The New York Times "Many have tried this before--to get hold of, in its entirety, the volatile, beautiful, relentlessly shifting Caribbean. Nobody has succeeded as dazzlingly." --Marlon James, author of A Brief History of Seven Killings "This terrific travel narrative . . . is also a magnificent musical journey (reggae, salsa and ska), a literary odyssey . . . and a heartfelt historical voyage. Island People powerfully shows how places shape people, and how people shape places." ---The Observer "Joshua Jelly-Schapiro possesses both a humanist's irrepressible empathy and a journalist's necessary skepticism. He reports carefully, researches exhaustively, cares deeply, and writes beautifully."--Dave Eggers, author of Heroes of the Frontier "Joshua Jelly-Schapiro's grand book on the Caribbean is so striking in form and vision that it amounts to something new--a constant surprise."--Hilton Als, author of White Girls "Written with passion and joyful music in the prose, Island People will become an indispensable companion for anybody traveling to the Caribbean--or dreaming of doing so."--Suketu Mehta, author of Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found
