Discerner of Hearts

(1995)
A collection of stories by

 
 
The nine vividly rendered stories of place and character in Discerner of Hearts are set in Jamaica, both rural and urban, some present-day, others looking back several decades. Senior's gift for fine characterization, for recreating the music of everyday speech, pervades these tales, which explore notions of home and exile as well as the intricate realm of the human spirit - its fallible nature, its indomitable strength against the sometimes downward pull of fate.
