Author and Macalester professor Marlon James’ latest novel, A Brief History of Seven Killings, is rooted in his native Jamaica. The work earned him critical praise and one of the most prestigious literary awards in the world, the Man Booker Prize for Fiction.

Acclaim for his work didn’t always come so easily. James’ first novel was rejected nearly 80 times before it was published.
