The Long Song/Andrea Levy

This is not your usual slave narrative. The main character has her own version of the “truth”  and the island lilt in her retelling of historical events is unmistakable.  Andrea Levy’s book tells a brutal tale but manages to have moments of humor and also candidly reveals the color complex in the Afro-Caribbean community.  This was an entertaining read.
