<p><b>'Captivating from the very first page' Jennifer Egan</b><br /><br /><b>Shortlisted for the Fiction category in the OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature<br /></b><br />Discovered amidst a tangle of sea grape trees by the childless Rachel Fisher, baby Moshe's provenance is a thing of myth and mystery; his unusual appearance, with blueish, translucent skin and duo-toned hair, only serves to compound his mystique.<br /><br />Equally feared and ridiculed by peers as he grows up, he finds a surprising kindred soul in the striking and bold Arrienne Christie, but their complex relationship is fraught with obstacles that tear them apart as powerfully as they are drawn together.<br /><br />Beginning in the late 1950s, four years before Jamaica's independence from colonial rule, <i>A Tall History of Sugar</i>'s epic love story sweeps between a rural Jamaica, scarred by the legacies of colonialism, and an England increasingly riven by race riots and class division.</p>
