Bruce King E. A. Markham, Marking Time. The Caribbean Writer, Vol. 14
An intelligent part-by-part analysis of the novel, asking some of the many questions Markham provokes. Places Marking Time in the context of Markham’s life and work, and addresses the sometimes baffling complexity of this writer.
Jim Hannan E. A. Markham. Marking Time. World Literature Today, Vol. 74:2
Positive review focusing on the central character, Pewter Stapleton, and seeing Marking Time as a novel with a ‘probing social conscience’.
Natasha Marshall ‘Archie follows fiction on globe-trotting tour’: E A Markham Sheffield Telegraph
Interview with Markham about his new collection of short stories, also tracing his path from Montserrat, through university and work in the UK, to his current position as a highly regarded writer and lecturer.
Boyd Tonkin ‘A volcanic talent from a tiny island’ The Independent
A glowing review from one of England’s leading literary editors, delighting in the playfulness and humour of the stories, while recognizing their gravity and scope. [Also reviews Markham’s most recent poetry book, A Rough Climate.]
