A SPECIAL EDITION OF THE 2015 BOOKER PRIZE WINNER, WITH A BRAND-NEW FOREWORD AND A Q&A WITH THE AUTHOR 

* With a new foreword by Bernardine Evaristo *

‘Epic in every sense of the word’ New York Times

Jamaica, 1976. Seven gunmen storm Bob Marley’s house, machine guns blazing.

The reggae superstar survives, but the gunmen are never caught. 

In A Brief History of Seven Killings, Marlon James reimagines the story behind this near-mythical event, chronicling the lives of a host of unforgettable characters from street kids, drug lords and journalists, to prostitutes and secret service agents. 

Gripping, inventive and ambitious, it is one of the most mesmerising and influential novels of the twenty-first century.

‘Showcases the extraordinary capabilities of a writer whose importance can scarcely be questioned’ Independent
