    Marlon James

    Top Ten Books

    Marlon James is the author behind the novels John Crow’s Devil, The Book of Night WomenA Brief History of Seven Killings, which was awarded the Man Booker Prize for fiction in 2015, and Black Leopard, Red Wolf, a mesmerizing fantasy that includes necromancers, river witches, conjoined twins, shape-shifting hyenas, eaters of human flesh, trolls, a “very smart” buffalo, a deranged killer monkey and Ekoiye, a “whore who loves civet musk.” Shortly after publication, Michael B. Jordan’s production company Outlier Society and Warner Bros. snatched up the film rights to Black Leopard, the first in a projected three-novel cycle. “Literature should be sensual and endlessly sensory,” says James. “I like books that make me feel like I’m emerging from a fever, like Toni Morrison’s Song of Solomonor Orhan Pamuk’s My Name is Red. You’re hearing it, smelling it and touching it."

    Below are Marlon James’s favorite books, available to purchase as a set or individually.
