Read full description of the books:



Kingston, 3 décembre 1976. Deux jours avant un concert en faveur de la paix organisé par le parti au pouvoir, dans un climat d’extrême tension politique, sept hommes armés font irruption au domicile de Bob Marley. Le chanteur est touché à la poitrine et au bras, sa femme et son manager grièvement blessés. Pourtant, le 5 décembre, Bob Marley réunit 80 000 personnes lors d’un concert historique au National Heroes Park.

Si ce roman s’ouvre sur la figure du musicien reggae, il est peuplé d’hommes politiques, agents de la CIA, barons de la drogue, prostituées ou membres de gangs. En somme, un livre monumental qui abrite plusieurs voix, déroulant les années 70 à nos jours, en Jamaïque et aux États-Unis. Brève histoire de sept meurtres n’est pas seulement un livre sur l’histoire de la Jamaïque mais surtout une interrogation percutante sur le pouvoir, l’agent, la politique et la violence. Un tour de force audacieux, inventif et exigeant.

Read information about the author

Ebook Brève Histoire de sept meurtres read Online! Marlon James is a Jamaican-born writer. He has published three novels: John Crow's Devil (2005), The Book of Night Women (2009) and A Brief History of Seven Killings (2014), winner of the 2015 Man Booker Prize. Now living in Minneapolis, James teaches literature at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota.

James was born in Kingston, Jamaica, to parents who were both in the Jamaican police: his mother (who gave him his first prose book, a collection of stories by O. Henry) became a detective and his father (from whom James took a love of Shakespeare and Coleridge) a lawyer. James is a 1991 graduate of the University of the West Indies, where he read Language and Literature. He received a master's degree in creative writing from Wilkes University (2006).

James has taught English and creative writing at Macalester College since 2007. His first novel, John Crow's Devil — which was rejected 70 times before being accepted for publication — tells the story of a biblical struggle in a remote Jamaican village in 1957. His second novel, The Book of Night Women, is about a slave woman's revolt in a Jamaican plantation in the early 19th century. His most recent novel, 2014's A Brief History of Seven Killings, explores several decades of Jamaican history and political instability through the perspectives of many narrators. It won the fiction category of the 2015 OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature and the 2015 Man Booker Prize for Fiction, having been the first book by a Jamaican author ever to be shortlisted. He is the second Caribbean winner of the prize, following Trinidad-born V. S. Naipaul who won in 1971.
