Minus the Caribbean, this was the essence of a question asked recently on Lit Hub: Best of the Decade: What Books Will We Still Be Reading in 10 Years?
A very small handful of Caribbean books made it on to that list (the main and subsidiary combined):
Citizen: an American Lyric by Claudia Rankine who is of Jamaica (haven’t read yet but it’s on my TBR)
Create Dangerously by Edwidge Dandicat of Haiti (love! love! love! – see blogger on books review)
A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James of Jamaica (dug this one as well for the most part – see blogger on books review)
What do you think? Are there any Caribbean books you would add?
Drop them in the comments.
