Hearne felt his duty as a writer was to examine fundamental human truths rather than social politics or a nationalistic agenda, and his short stories are exemplars of this intention. From his first published piece, the fable "The Mongoose Who Came to the City", to his unpublished last story "Reckonings", this collection of critically acclaimed short stories is essential reading for any serious student of Caribbean literature or any reader seeking a broader understanding of the culture of the region in the early days of independence.
