    Marlon James

    Top Ten Books

    Marlon James is the author behind the novels John Crow’s Devil and The Book of Night Women, and his third, A Brief History of Seven Killings, which was awarded the Man Booker Prize for fiction in 2015. James was the first Jamaican author to ever be shortlisted for the prize, and his win was decided unanimously by the judges in under two hours. Following the award, HBO will create a series based on the novel, which spans several decades and locations (from Jamaica to New York and back) — adapted for the small screen by screenwriter Eric Roth alongside James.

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