There have been many great and enduring works of literature by Caribbean authors over the last century. The Caribbean Contemporary Classics collection celebrates these deep and vibrant stories, overflowing with life and acute observations about society.
A sparkling collection of short stories set in Trinidad. Anthony takes our hand and walks us from the valley of the lush, green cocoa trees, to taste the sweet rivers flowing nearby. We pluck fruit from the sapodilla tree and feel the crisp, brown guava leaved carpet crunch under our feet. We see Mayaro and Port of the Spain through the eyes of childish innocence and grown-up ignorance. Beautiful, evocative and poignant, the stories are sprinkled with themes of yearning for home, sad realisations and a longing for a pre-modern totality.
