Roger Mais was a Jamaican journalist, novelist, poet, and playwright. He began writing verse and short stories in the 1930's and his involvement in the emerging nationalist movement of the time is reflected in his work.  The West Indies & Special Collection (WISC) of the Mona Library houses many of Roger Mais works including short stories such as City Stricken to thee Bone, as well as postcards collected during his travels.
