A book about talent encompassing creative potential. A book about who gets a chance to shine on the world stage, who doesn’t and why. A maiden talent competition set in 1960s post-independence Trinidad. How far have we come in creating a living, breathing, working meritocracy in the Caribbean? Journey by Foot – walk with them, three artists from diverse backgrounds, three cutting facets of Caribbean existence, all three with the same dream – stardom, and then, arrive at your own destination, your own conclusion.
For the little men-to-be with big dreams. For their fathers who dream a better dream for their sons beyond their own truncated imaginations. For the mothers who want to cheer them both on, see their men emerge as heroes above the adversity of their ever-present nemeses. For the little sisters who are finding their way and will neither be outshone, nor outdone. For the beacons of understanding whom they encounter along the way to make it all happen.
Ritchie the Cosmonaut. A story of an imperfect family living in an imperfect world yet determined to do better, be better and to touch the face of the moon.
Colourful. Exuberant. Irreverent. Burlesque. Dark. Enlightening. Revelatory. Socio-political satire at its best. A rich tapestry of intrigue. A slowly bubbling, burning cauldron of a twisted, avaricious imagination which should be stirred awake very slowly…What is hidden shall come to light. What was thought long buried will be finally exhumed. Enter the opulent doors of St. Crispin’s Enchanted Shoe Box, be utterly seduced by its owner and his creation, and then…Oh! and then, we will see what we will see. Full Stop.
A fall from glory. A rough-hewn journey back to a new beginning. We will start at the inflicting of a deep wound laid bare, its many manifestations, its many incarnations to a point of reflection, and ultimately the healing of broken hearts and troubled minds. Everything festering will be incised and given effluence, everything dead will be debrided. Then comes the healing honey… Are you ready?
Women in Black, where are you now? Where do you want to be for the long tomorrow? Women in Black, a book for women and the men who adore them. With love…
