Andrea Levy's Long Story

Through a succession of novels Andrea Levy has recounted the experience of Jamaicans in Britain stretching back to the days of the Empire Windrush, with her most acclaimed work, Small Island – now serialised on BBC television.

Her recently published novel, the Long Story, goes back further to an early 19th century slave plantation and the years before emancipation. Haven’t read it yet but given her previous work you’d expect it to be another valuable insight into this shared history: good and bad.
