Sipped Ink vol 7 — A Brief History of Seven Killings

This is the archive of a series of weekly emails sent out in 2021 to a group of readers participating in the seventh annual Sipped Ink summer read-along.

If you are about to read Marlon James’s Booker Prize-winning A Brief History of Seven Killings I wish you luck. It’s not a pleasant novel, and it requires something from the reader. Regardless, it’s a brilliantly constructed work, and one with great value. I hope that you get something from it, and also that you get some value from this material:
