Marlon James was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1970. James' second novel, The Book of Night Women, won the 2010 Dayton Literary Peace Prize, The Minnesota Book Award, a finalist for the 2010 National Book Critics Circle Award in fiction, and an NAACP Image Award. He was also Go On Girl Book Club's Author of the year. His first novel, John Crow's Devil (2005), was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and the Commonwealth Writers Prize, and was a New York Times Editor's Choice. His short fiction has appeared in Esquire, Kingston Noir, and Silent Voices, and his nonfiction has appeared in Granta, Publisher's Weekly and The Caribbean Review of Books. In his third novel, A Brief History Of Seven Killings, James is exploring multiple genres: the political thriller, the oral biography, and the classic whodunit to confront the untold history of Jamaica in the late 1970's; of the assassination attempt on Bob Marley, and the country's own clandestine battles of the cold war.
