Foreword by Ken Ramchand

A unique collection of short stories from the Caribbean, capturing the violence, trickery, pathos and racial comedy of Trinidadian society.

“Brilliant and exuberant. A triumph of Caribbean prose from a writer of natural, abundant talent” David Dabydeen

“In these wonderously wrought stories, Willi Chen evokes the richness, beauty and diversity of Trinidad life” Selwyn Cudjoe

“In Willi Chen, Trinidad and Tobago has a short story writer of uniqueness and class. His work is bound to leave a stamp on our literature” Michael Anthony
