    Samuel Selvon is by far my favourite. I started with The Lonely Londoners. It was the first book I've read that was written in Caribbean English.

    Other are Michael Anthony and Errol John.

    Anyone remembers Moon on a Rainbow Shawl?

    Some I've read are:

    Merle Collins
    Michael Anthony (Loved his Greens days by the River and others from that series)
    V S Naipaul (disappointed with his views of his homeland)
    Derek Walcott
    Jamaica Kincaid

    .....

    Andrea Levy...she has a new release called "Fruit of The Lemon" that's out now. There's a review of the book in today's Washington Post, and it's mentioned in the March issue of Essence.

    She's an excellent author. I read two of her other titles, When Rocks Dance & Bruised Hibiscus. Couldn't put them down.
