    I, too, would count Jamaica Kincaid (Annie John, My Brother), Edwidge Dandicat (The Farming of Bones), Sam Selvon (Lonely Londoners), Jean Rhys (Wide Sargasso Sea)...among my all time faves...and among more recent reads thoroughly enjoyed Marie Elena's Unburnable, Althea Prince Loving this Man and Ladies of the Night, Elizabeth Nunez's Prospero's Daughter, D. Gisele Iaac's Considering Venus, Colin Channer's Waiting in Vain, Ramabai Espinet's The Swinging Bridge...love the poetry of Martin Carter...I'm an unrepentant book hound and there are likely others I'm forgetting. But these are a few of the Caribbean authors and books I've enjoyed.
