Thine Is the Kingdom

Garth Buckner
CATEGORIES: Sense of Culture

From A Year of Reading the World: The novel “chronicles the attempts of white Bahamian Gavin Blake to carve out a life for himself in the country of his birth after years of traveling round the world. Hampered by a legal technicality [that] dictates that Bahamian-born children take their fathers’ nationalities, penniless Blake, whose father was American, goes to work for rich yacht-owner Thesinger while he tries to apply for citizenship. But as he witnesses the rise of violent crime and social unrest on the island firsthand, he comes to realize that he is not the only one struggling to hold on to his stake in this millionaire’s playground.”

(Recommended by Ann Morgan, author and TED speaker)
