Golden sunsets on sandy beaches, sips of fresh-from-the-source coconut juice, and aquamarine waves dancing on the shore blend into a symphony- this is Jamaica. The epitome of an island getaway, Jamaica is more than the strip of hotels and resorts. Past the golden gates lives a vibrant community filled with history, customs, laughter, family, and, of course, warm patties. In, Jamoji-Essays of Life and Play, author Colleen Hall dives into the Jamaica she grew up in and the reasons she comes back to it again and again.
From how Jamaicans live to how they grow, Hall opens a window into the soul of the island and its people. With almost a third of Jamaican-born nationals living outside of Jamaica, Hall portrays how the diaspora still carries the heartbeat of their motherland. She expertly entwines memorable anecdotes, mishaps, and insights to share the real Jamaica, one both on and off the island.
Jamoji immerses every visitor-both new and returning- into Jamaican culture, customs, and cuisines.
No problem, mon!
