A Thief in the Village: And Other Stories (1987; see separate entry, vol. 9) focuses on modern-day Jamaica, but it features people who would likely be descendants of Ajeemah and other Africans brought to Jamaica against their will. Like Ajeemah and His Son, the stories in A Thief in the Village are written in a dignified prose style that honors the ordinary lives of characters depicted. From reading the stories, a reader can gain an impression of what life is like for most people in Jamaica—their family lives, their friendships, their prejudices, their clothing, and their ways of earning livings.

Where Ajeemah and His Son has themes that might be best understood by teenagers, the stories of Thief in the Village are accessible to younger readers as well as young adults.
