9780771080531: Discerner of Hearts

The nine vividly rendered stories of place and character in Discerner of Hearts are set in Jamaica, both rural and urban, some present-day, others looking back several decades. Senior’s gift for fine characterization, for recreating the music of everyday speech, pervades these tales, which explore notions of home and exile as well as the intricate realm of the human spirit – its fallible nature, its indomitable strength against the sometimes downward pull of fate.

From the Back Cover:

“With vivid characterization and language that sings, Olive Senior discloses a bittersweet world where stark reality and magic combine.”
–Jane Urquhart

“Spotlighting the multiple marks of class and racial difference [in Jamaica], Senior offers a luminous portrait of people struggling to find their own place in a changing world.”
New York Times Book Review
