Description:

Great looking paperback! 1983 # 30 in the Caribbean Writers Series published by Heinemann, London/ Kingston/ Port of Spain. Very Good + or Near Fine . Shiny, shiny wraps with slight edge-wear and a minor bit of rubbing in a couple of spots near the binding, the binding is shiny, strong, square and clean; the inside is whistle-clean and unmarked with a even and pleasant and consistent tone of off -white pages. "Roger Mais was born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1905. His mother was a teacher, and he was educated privately until he was fourteen, when he went to Calabar High School. On leaving school with a Senior Certificate, he took a job first in the Civil Service but soon searched for employment better suited to his Bohemian temperament. He was at one time or another a banana tallyman, an insurance salesman, a horticulturalist, a photographer, a journalist on the Daily Gleaner and a staff worker on Public Opinion. He died in 1955." -- from back wrapper "Kenneth Ramchand says of Mais's third novel of the Jamaican working class. "I would like to contend that it is in 'Black Lightning' that Mais's art and understanding are in greatest harmony, and that it is upon this, his last published novel, that his reputation must rest.".
