Book Description

There have been many great and enduring works of literature by Caribbean authors over the last century. The Caribbean Contemporary Classics collection celebrates these deep and vibrant stories, overflowing with life and acute observations about society.

Empire Windrush has long had an iconic status in British and Caribbean history. This book, largely told in the form of diary entries and letters home, reveals the day to day experience of the first immigrants, and the far-reaching effects on their lives and relationships. Jen has left a young daughter, Sunshine, in Jamaica, and in these letters to her daughter, she attempts to make sense of the dislocation and displacement she experiences, her response, and the effect on those close to her. A companion novel to Aunt Jen, Letters Home is a penetrating and devastating study of the immigrant experience in 1960s Britain, and its long-lasting consequences.

Suitable for readers aged 16 and above.
