Caryl Phillips - The Lost Child
Politics and Prose, Thursday, March 26 at 7pm
Drawing on his own heritage—which includes British, Jamaican, and African roots—Phillips has worked to fill in the gaps of English-language literature. In his latest novel, the award-winning author of Crossing the River braids fact and fictions, combining the history of the Bronte family, Wuthering Heights, and his own imagined moor-dwellers for a powerful version of Heathcliff’s story. (Farrar, Straus and Giroux)
