Product Description

What people are saying…

“A fast-paced story of father and son, packed with misadventures and set against the backdrop of contemporary Jamaica . . . . Ellis sets his story in 2008 Jamaica, where ‘old people are burnt in their homes for no reason at all; stubborn old men are slaughtered by gunmen’—where ‘it is so easy to get away with murder.’ This milieu adds a great deal of tension . . . . Well-constructed . . . . Admirable.”
Kirkus Reviews

Shortlisted for the 2015 Una Marson Award for Adult Literature, part of the Lignum Vitae Awards (Jamaica)

“It takes a lot to stand out in the crowded field of Caribbean lit, but Garfield Ellis grabs mystery, family, love, hate, longing, and loss, boils them down to a Jamaica we don’t always see, and rises to the top.”
—Marlon James, author of A Brief History of Seven Killings

The Angels’ Share is Garfield Ellis’s passport to the center of the literary world. Ellis is a writer of tremendous talent with that rare quality that can only be called bigness.”
—Colin Channer, author of 
The Girl with the Golden Shoes

“Ellis inhabits his story of a lost-and-found father and a host of engaging characters and breathtaking incidents with skill, humor, and honesty. A page-turning read.”
—Olive Senior, author of Dancing Lessons

“Ellis’s compelling novel joins the literature of the Caribbean to bring an exciting new view of our outer and subterranean landscapes whose ghosts are not victims, and whose survivors join a legacy of heroes.”
—Rachel Manley, author of In My Father’s Shade
