Publisher Comments:

In these vivid stories, Earl Lovelace paints a compassionate, often humorous portrait of everyday life in Trinidad. Ordinary people like Victory the barber, Shoemaker Arnold, Miss Ross (once the most sought-after woman in Cunaripo), and Blues and Joebell who are eager to see new lands, are invested with a special magic that draws the reader into a rhythmical, colorful, and changing world.
