In “Bookshelf 2011,” we praised Bivouac (2010), by multiple-prize-winning poet and novelist Kwame Dawes, as “a dark novel about death, politics, family, and sex in a Jamaica that has a ‘scarcely understood sense of temporariness and dislocation,’ with dialogue that puts you right onto the streets of Kingston.” Reissued now [...] it reads better than ever, a dreamlike work about the island in the 1980s.
