One People is one hilarious window into this world, with no net curtains to Guy Kennaway's delightful novel brilliantly evokes the unique culture of Jamaica, and in particular the village of Angel Beach, a small, tightly knit community where everybody has a say in everything, no dispute is too petty, no relationship inconsequential, and there's no such thing as a secret. One People is one hilarious window into this world, with no net curtains to obscure the view.
Guy Kennaway lives for pleasure, producing books only when all else has failed. He is best known for One People about a Jamaican village threatened my mass US tourism, and Bird Brain about a community of optimistic pheasants. He has written for magazines and newspapers, as well as many film scripts and TV adaptations, none of which have been made. Not surprisingly he lives alone.
Drawing on extensive time spent there, the author creates a slice of small-town Jamaica in his depiction of Cousins Cove, where everybody has a say in everything and no secret, dispute or relationship is private.

The Crown' actor Alex Jennings narrates Guy Kennaway's book. In 2017 Susie Kennaway asked her son Guy to kill her. 88 years old, with an older and infirm husband, Susie wanted to avoid sliding into infantilised catatonia. Her son immediately started taking notes and Time to Go is the result. Many elderly people, like Susie, have clearly stated that they wish to die in a manner and time of their choosing. But the Church, the law, the medical profession and the pharmaceutical industry stand in the way, wagging their fingers. A change is coming for the rights of the elderly, the way it has come for the rights of women and gay people. Guy Kennaway's books include One People, a novel, and Sunbathing Naked, a memoir. He lives in Somerset. For the latest books, recommendations, offers and more.

These are my two favourite books ever. Rule of the Bone is a rites of passage story, One People is a fictional history of the Jamaican people show more These are my two favourite books ever. My new (very new, like two weeks) boyfriend and I are exchanging books we love for Christmas, and I'd love to hear from anyone who has read both of these and has an opinion. Also, maybe I shouldn't give him either of these? If he reads it and hates it, I will have to end things, lol! Thanks a lot!
