Summary

''Every country (if she's lucky) gets the Mark Twain she deserves, and Winkler is ours, bristling with savage Jamaican wit, heart-stopping compassion, and jaw-dropping humor all at once.''-Marlon James, author of John Crow's Devil With his characteristic outrageousness, Anthony C. Winkler subverts conventional thinking in this entertaining, thought-provoking, and ultimately uplifting novel about one Jamaican man's surprising trip to heaven.
