The Bed Head
Author: Jennifer Grahame
Sleeping with the Help is a common practice in the Caribbean, dating back to the days of slavery. For most men it is a passing phase, others take it more seriously. Harry Levy took it to the extreme.
A romantic comedy of Island life set in the cool hills of St. Andrew, Jamaica, The Bed Head tells the story of two very different women struggling for a place in one man's heart. Harry Levy is determined to get what he wants even if it means opposing his family, leaving the family business, and thumbing his nose at his affluent lifestyle. His enduring love sustains him through hate, jealousy, and even murdermuch to the dismay of his family and friends.
A comedy at first glance, The Bed Head has deeper undertones that arise from social ills below the seductive surfaces of Caribbean life.

Being Jamaican, I could thoroughly identify with this book and understand the nuances of the society. The writer did a good job capturing the lingo, the thought processes, the curse words and a good story line.
Another excellent novel by Jennifer Grahame! The Bed Head is entertaining and interesting. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
