When Jamaican novelist Marlon James walks into a room, you know it. He has the thing casting agents call “presence.” He’s there there. That translates to his books, too: his novel A Brief History of Seven Killings was released in 2014 to rapturous reviews, and it won the prestigious Man Booker prize. His latest book Black Leopard, Red Wolf was recently released, too. James carries a lot on his back: notepads, cough drops, mints, cables, headphones, a book light.​ To see everything else he carries, follow the link in our bio. 📷: @holowatyrose
