This novel offers a detailed analysis of the radical history of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and the Caribbean region inthe 1960's and 1970's with its connection to the wider world. This novel, which is humorous at times, is in the same tradition of excellence blazed by G.C.H. Thomas for this multi-island state and hence perhaps the most significant literary piece of post-colonial writing for nearly five decades. The author provides insights, though fitional, into the main personalities that forged the radical movement. In essence, the work is autobiographical since the author was integrally involved in the radical movement and steered the New Artists Movement (NAM), the cultural arm, of the radical movement. This is a must read if you are interested in politics, trade unionism, popular culture or international relations. This work is a good example of why many historians insist fiction can be history; that 'fiction is the repressed other of historical discourse.'
