By Kerry Young
A richly imagined, wholly engrossing and utterly captivating novel that tells the remarkable history of twentieth century JamaicaTweet
This is a gentle tale of a young Chinese boy who is brought up in Jamaica following the death of his father. I struggled with the writing style to begin with but then found I could read it easily without 'translating' into more conventional text. From youth to old age Pao finds his own solutions to the difficulties life throws at him.
