Title: How to Love a Jamaican Author: Alexia Arthurs Publisher: Ballantine Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: Four Review: "How to Love a Jamaican" by Alexia Arthurs My Thoughts... What a interesting bunch of interesting entertaining collection of stories that will keep you turning the pages to see what was happening not only in Jamaica but also America. This Jamaica culture was really one intriguing read. I enjoyed reading how each story had a 'person of Jamaican descent with most of the story being of self discover, remembrance and moments of transcendence.' I loved how the read made the reader be caught up in the 'everyday voices that dealt with just everyday life. The reader will get a little bit of it all from such as ...'Who are these brothers and sisters, mothers, old loves and absent fathers?.' Be ready for a read full of not only 'tender but some heartbreaking stories' that will definitely leave you only wanting more of these collection of stories.
