Includes the plays 11 Josephine House, The Death of a Black Man and Lonely Cowboy Jamaican-born Fagon came to England at the age of 18, working first on the railways, and then enlisting in the army, where he became a boxing champion. He soon became a leading figure in black theatre. His characters, with explosive consequences, struggle to live in a hostile British culture as exiles from their spiritual home. This collection spans the whole of Fagon's remarkable writing career. He died in 1986 at the tragically early age of 49.
