Orginal Publication Date
Explorations in Sights and Sounds
The Trinidadian, Michael Anthony, gives us yet another novel, having previously published The Year in San Fernando, Green Days by the River, The Games Were Coming, Streets of Conflict and a collection of short stories, Cricket in the Road. For this novel, he has drawn heavily on the native elements of Trinidad and Tobago. Interestingly enough, the political situation plays only a minor role in the novel, unlike the works of other Caribbean authors like George Lamming and V. S. Naipaul, for example.
