Man Booker Prize winner Marlon James on the music that moves him
2015 Man Booker Prize recipient Marlon James is the first Jamaican novelist ever to win the prestigious U.K. literary prize. His novel — A Brief History of Seven Killings — jumps off from the real-life assassination attempt on reggae star Bob Marley.
Music suffuses both the story, and the author's own life. In today's instalment of the q playlist series, James joins Shad to share songs that mean the most to him as a man and artist, as well as their connection to his roots.
