The Same Earth

Average: 4 (4 votes)

This extract from Kei Miller's novel, The Same Earth, tells the story of Jonathon and his supposed drowning in the river. 

The children of the village rush back to report Jonathon's disappearance, with just his shoes by the river bank. Local legend seems to dictate what happened.

The story, as the novel, is set in Jamaica, and some of the language reflects the way that English is spoken in parts of the Caribbean.
