Ma Taffy may be blind, but she sees everything. So when her great-nephew Kaia comes home from school in tears, what she senses sends a deep fear running through her. While they wait for his mama to come home from work, Ma Taffy recalls the story of the flying preacherman and a great thing that did not happen.
A poor suburban sprawl in the Jamaican heartland, Augustown is a place where many things that should happen don't, and plenty of things that shouldn't happen do. For the story of Kaia leads back to another momentous day in Jamaican history, the birth of the Rastafari, and the desire for a better life.

I have Taught Caribbean literature at a university, and I think this is one of the very best new novels from this area. It is one of the best novels I have read this year: beautifully written, with memorable characters, humor, Pathos, tragedy, set in a very rich Caribbean setting. This author is one of the very best. I highly recommend this book. Edward Hower
