A Brief History Of Seven Killings by Marlon James is the recipient of the 2015 Man Booker Prize. Set in Kingston, Jamaica, where the author was born, the book is a fictional history of the attempted murder of Bob Marley in 1976. Awarded annually, the Man Booker Prize is open to fiction writers of any nationality writing in English, and published in the U.K. It was won last year by Richard Flanagan for The Narrow Road to the Deep North. Cheers for Marlon James!
