about

"He had been brought up as a Trinidadian . . . In a small island that no one knew anything about."
In the post-War Caribbean colony, as an earlier generation thinks of returning to India, Foster, a young man, goes to England and Rufis his brother leaves for the United States, each in search of himself and his world.
Combining his characteristic humour with a vivid sense of place, Selvon's An Island is a World tells a moving story of personal and intellectual quest in our time.

With an introduction by Kenneth Ramchand.

The author of more than a dozen books, Sam Selvon was one of the most important writers to have emerged in the West Indies. After spending two decades in England, he lived in Calgary, Alberta.
