This book is actually just as good as the amazing movie it's based on, and more in-depth. I imagine you could find it on Amazon.
"Michael Thelwell's profound love for Jamaica has nurtured the content of this beautifully achieved and memorable novel. I haven't experienced a more truthful, passionate and harrowing report on the the third world. Thelwell's book will last and last."- Andrew Salkey
"As Black people say in the South, 'it makes you want to laugh; it makes you want to cry'. It makes you want to keep on in the struggle."- Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael)
