    Rachel Manley
Drumblair is an intimate memory of the Manley family - Norman and Edna and their son Michael - and their impact on the intellectual, social and cultural landscape of Jamaica. It is also the story of Michael's daughter, Rachel, and her journey into adulthood. Drumblair is an intelligent, beautifully layered evocation of childhood within Jamaica's first family of politics. Told in the language of a poet, the memoir is sensitive, intimate, detailed and honest, yet restrained and loving. "Rachel Manley's poignant reminiscences are uniquely both a work of history and the celebration of familial love. Drumblair should be read by every West Indian who aspires to that identity - in Jamaica and beyond: and by all who understand us." Sir Shridath Ramphal, Former Secretary General of the Commonwealth: Chancellor, University of the West Indies
