In a new and highly original take on Jamaican life (on the island and in the United States), Anthony C. Winkler introduces the estimable Precious, a large-bottomed, meltingly juicy Christian Jamaican woman with unshakable ideas on the right and proper behavior for Christian Jamaican women, their husbands, and men and dogs in general.

Anthony Winkler was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1942. He is the author of four previous novels and has been regarded over the past twenty years as one of the country’s most talented voices. He has also written two movies, The Lunatic and The Annihilation of Fish. He now lives in Atlanta, Georgia.

The new novel from Jamaica's unrivaled master of comic fiction.
