This important biography of Antigua’s greatest calypsonian is also an in-depth study of the culture and socio-political history of Antigua and Barbuda and the wider Caribbean. The traditional ‘Caribbean song’ and its creators are treated with dignity and deep appreciation. The result is an essential and long overdue addition to the study of calypso. This is a must-read for calypso lovers, but there is something here for everyone – from the casual reader with interest in Caribbean music and culture to the students and teachers of Caribbean sociology and cultural studies.
