The Last Warner Woman

by Kei Miller

A colourful and magical novel which traces one woman's journey from a leper colony in Jamaica to a UK mental hospital. Part told in Jamaican patois, it is as gripping as any thriller and one of the most refreshingly different stories I've read in a very long time.


My own story, in my own time. I thinking if I do that, maybe I can find the lost roads. I thinking, finally somebody will hear me out proper. I wanted to do it. I wanted to tell you everything I could. But always remember, it was you, Mr Writer Man. It was you that promised to be patient, to listen to my story in its own order. So why now that I doing just that, you have started to frown? Why now that I is here, in your house, telling you how it really happen, you have started to change up my words as if it was ever your story to change.
