Description: "...is poetry, prose and history told with the beauty, the sensitivity and the feeling typical of the kind of West Indian novel that is no longer written". -- Ismith Khan, The Toronto Review.

"The atmosphere and insight displayed in this book make it a considerable achievement". -- The Irish Times

"An impressive work, rich in symbolism and levels of meaning". -- Merle Hodge

"I born in Trinidad, you know..".

"But you're away long time, not so?"

An American-educated academic returning to his native Trinidad after long years away yearns for points of contact with his past and the island and culture he's grown to respect in his absence. He finds Trinidad changed, yet depressingly the same in its poverty, its smallness, its distance from the metropolis, with memories still fresh of recent racial violence and youths gone away to become guerrillas. Now in his later middle age as he contemplates the irrevocable choices he's made, including self- imposed exile and study, he cannot find a soul on the island to seek solace with. His experiences of America and Trinidad have left him a perpetual wanderer without a home.
