Yamaye lives for the weekend raves. She is a young woman unsure of her future, and the rhythms are her guide to discovering who she is. In the dance-hall darkness, dub is the music of her soul, her friendships, her ancestry. Seasoned with patois and musicality, Crooks' novel scores a dramatic journey that takes her first to Bristol - where she is caught up in a gang and nation-wide riots - and then to Jamaica, where past and present collide.
