Roger Mais’ Brother Man is a striking novel. Published in 1954, the story focuses on Brother Man and his neighborhood lane in Kingston, Jamaica  . Mais spoke for the dispossessed black community of Jamaica. His novel "The Hills Were Joyful Together" (1953) is a devastating portrait of degradation and violence that uses a complicated symbolic structure. Set in a tenement yard in Kingston, the work focuses on a multitude of characters and their struggle merely to exist. In 1952, Mais left Jamaica, perhaps because of the negative reaction to the social voice in his work.

Black Lightning by Roger Mais is a short novel on relationships which is centered on the struggles of an artist. Jamaica is not explicitly set as a backdrop as Mais utilizes fairly flat characters applicable to any setting. The introduction to the book states that Mais is making an attempt at myth making, and the characters tend to fall into certain archetypes that would make the story recognizable across cultures. Jamaica is still present however, as the characters sing songs and interact within their homes adjacent to a forest.
