#📚Books to #read in #2018 & #BookOfTheMonth: ‘Brother Man’ by Roger Mais #BrotherMan #Books #NoCriticsJustPolitics

“Originally published in 1954 and acclaimed around the world as one of the classics of Caribbean fiction, “Brother Man” is the tragic story of an honest Rastafarian healer caught up in a web of intrigue and betrayal in Jamaica’s tough West Kingston slums. The healer’s name is John Power, but everybody calls him Brother Man – a cobbler whose ability to cure the sick and injured through a mystic force uplifts him to the status of a prophet. Throngs begin to trail him when he passes in the street. With each miracle performed his reputation spreads. Looking on with envy is the evil Papacita, a violent enforcer whose authority is threatened by Brother Man’s message of peace and love. Papacita’s jealousy is stirred in more ways than one. The brutal schemer also covets the attention of Minette, a young attractive girl that Brother Man has rescued from the streets. Set in the same rambunctious lanes that reggae icons like Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff would later stroll and sing about, “Brother Man”, is the unforgettable portrait of a ghetto saint – an ordinary man selected by the universe to bring enlightenment to poor belittled people. It’s a story of compelling mythic power that has stood the test of time.”
