About this title:

Synopsis:

“Back in America, little was known of my life in Jamaica,? wrote Errol Flynn.

In 1946, a storm-wrecked boat carrying Hollywood?s most famous swashbuckler shored up on the coast of Jamaica, and the glamorous world of 1940?s Hollywood converged with that of a small West Indian society. After a long and storied career on the silver screen, Errol Flynn spent much of the last years of his life on a small island off of Jamaica, throwing parties and sleeping with increasingly younger teenaged girls. Based on those years, The Pirate?s Daughter is the story of Ida, a local girl who has an affair with Flynn that produces a daughter, May, who meets her father but once.

Spanning two generations of women whose destinies become inextricably linked with the matinee idol?s, this lively novel tells the provocative history of a vanished era, of uncommon kinships, compelling attachments, betrayal and atonement in a paradisal, tropical setting. As adept with Jamaican vernacular as she is at revealing the internal machinations of a fading and bloated matinee idol, Margaret Cezair-Thompson weaves a saga of a mother and daughter finding their way in a nation struggling to rise to the challenge of independence.

About the Author: Margaret Cezair-Thompson is the author of a widely acclaimed previous novel, The True History of Paradise. Born in Jamaica, West Indies, she teaches literature and creative writing at Wellesley College.
