  Rachel Manley 1 October 2004  
On life as a Prime Minister's daughter

Michael Manley was the three-term Prime Minister of Jamaica who stood at the heart of a turbulent decade as his country came of age in the 1970's.

Rachel Manley talks to Martha about her father's charismatic personality, his flaws and frailties, the strength of affection they had for one another and the way in which he eventually gave her the courage to pursue her own life as a writer.

In My Father's Shade is published by BlackAmber Books
