about

This new collection of short stories from an award-winning writer explores a Caribbean world of yearnings and memory, of escape and return underpinned by the disturbing tensions wrought by religion, race, sexuality and crime.

Sensuous and evocative, Scott’s prose has a glorious lightness of touch and tone that exhilarates and illuminates.
