About the book

Her second novel, NEVER FAR FROM NOWHERE, was long listed for the Orange Prize, and her last novel, SMALL ISLAND, won the Orange Prize for Fiction, the Orange Prize for Fiction: Best of the Best, the Whitbread Novel Award, the Whitbread Book of the Year Award and the Commonwealth Writers' Prize

SMALL ISLAND has now been adapted into a major BBC TV drama

Andrea Levy has been a judge for the Orange Prize for Fiction, Orange Futures and the Saga Prize, and has been a recipient of an Arts Council Award

Praise for Andrea Levy's SMALL ISLAND: 'What makes Levy's writing so appealing is her even-handedness.  All her characters can be weak, hopeless, brave, good, bad - whatever their colour.  The writing is rigorous and the bittersweet ending, with its unexpected twist, touching...  People can retain their dignity, however small their island' Independent on Sunday

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and longlisted for the Orange Prize, THE LONG SONG is breathtaking, hauntingly beautiful, heartbreaking and unputdownable

You do not know me yet. My son Thomas, who is publishing this book, tells me, it is customary at this place in a novel to give the reader a little taste of the story that is held within these pages. As your storyteller, I am to convey that this tale is set in Jamaica during the last turbulent years of slavery and the early years of freedom that followed.
