Marlon James' fictional account of the men behind a 1976 attempt to assassinate Bob Marley features a sprawling, gnarly cast of characters. We talk with him about the novel, his approach to writing and what it means to be part of the Caribbean diaspora living in the U.S.
Thomas Jefferson was one of America’s original oenophiles. But his lifelong goal to create an American wine to match European vintages was never achieved. In the 1820s, it was a different Virginia-native– Dr. Daniel Norton — whose experimentation in his home garden would lead to a grape that still bares his name. We explore the unique story of Norton wine, and the evolution of American wine-making.
