Cultural Truths with an edge

The Bitter Bean is a conversation about the face of art and culture in Jamaica. The blogger offers hard edged portraits of art, literature, politics media and music that are sometimes bitter and sometimes sweet.

The blog entries here bring a bare faced but elegant commentary on the kind of reality that is the gritty underside of those who live by various means of expression in Jamaica. Unfortunately, the blogger takes huge holidays in between his entries so there is no feeling of continuity.
