Barbara Lalla's beautifully written novel explores a universal question: when, where and how does one grow old with dignity. The intricate story unfolds in Jamaica and Trinidad and tells a moving and suspenseful tale of families dealing with ageing in a shifting culture, where British-colonial influences clash with modern Jamaican politics, and lawlessness is on the increase.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The author skilfully delineates the separate characters through the nuances of their speech and memories, and draws a poignant portrait of educated middle-class Jamaicans from independence to the present. . . . Few if any works of Caribbean literature have described so thoroughly and so movingly the tragedies, great and small, of aging."

- Nicholas Laughlin, Editor, Caribbean Review of Books Barbara Lalla is Professor of Language
