JAMAICA WHITE by Hal Underhill


Email this review


Indeed, there will be those to feel that this novel is more of an indignity than anything which takes place in it. James Arthur, a tradesman's son from England, comes to the Jamaica (of ? years ago) as a bookkeeper at Rose Hall, a sugar plantation in the hands of Annie Palmer who lashes the black backs of black bucks during the daytime while buckling under them in her bed at night. Arthur's in a very willing learning situation--from Mary Lou, ""a hot, urgent animal,"" to Annie herself who's no slouch and who comes to the end she so well deserves in a native uprising. Under the bougainvillea, more than one bugaboo and it all seethes with sex....Yassuh Yerbyites.
