It’s harrowing. It’s violent. But the pathos of this long literary novel will break your heart just as cleanly as the most tender reggae tune, as perfectly as the the ending of The Harder They Come. A multi-perspective lament over corrupt police, poverty, and rude boy antiheroes who meet their end all too soon. Tuffer than tuff.
