Abstract

Geoffrey Philp is a Jamaican writer who resides in South Florida, and his latest publication titled Marcus and the Amazons is a children’s book brimming with rich allegorical references to the Caribbean and indeed to the postcolonial world’s legacy of enslavement and oppression. However, despite its subject matter, Marcus and the Amazons has the delight, intrigue, and appeal of traditional children’s fiction.
