9780007291458: Brixton Bwoy

An autobiographical novel, this is the story of Pupatee, one of many brothers and sisters, growing up in Jamaica. At the age of nine, he is sent to live in London with his 20 year-old brother Joe, where he sees snow for the first time, along with light switches and television. He is also forced to cook for his violent brother who beats him if he does anything wrong soon Pupatee’s idyllic early childhood becomes a distant memory. It isn’t long before he is stealing bicycles, and then pickpocketing, shoplifting, armed robbery, and more serious offenses that land him in reformatories and prison. As he gets older it becomes more and more difficult, however hard Pupatee tries, to escape the life of crime that threatens to ruin him. Fresh and unflinching, this is a riveting and honest account of a boy’s strange journey into adulthood, his Jamaican past, and the South London streets that shape him.
