“Island Reliquaries: Voices from a Jamaican Past pays homage to Jamaican landscape. It interweaves the author’s poems into vivd portrait gallery of ordinary, yet extraordinary men and women who, by century-long industry and ingenuity, laid the foundations for today highly creative and cosmopolitan culture.”
