Author, Marlon James Photos by Christopher Ho

Marlon James discusses the endlessly beautiful and brutal world of Black Leopard, Red Wolf, the first novel in The Dark Star Trilogy. He talks about wanting violence to be violent, sex to be sexual, tenderness and brutality to receive equal attention, and for his novel to be filled with danger and forbidden ideas. Influenced by amoral, sexual, and fluid African stories, classic Greek drama, Caribbean folklore, and more--myth, fantasy, and history come together in a breathtaking saga.
