The master-storyteller turns his pen to rural village life with Ways of Sunlight in Trinidad: gossip and rivalry between village washerwomen; toiling cane-cutters reaping their harvest; superstitious old Ma Procop protecting the fruit of her Mango tree with magic. With equal wit and sensitivity, he reflects the depression of hard times in London, where people live in cold, damp basements, hustling for survival.

Industry Reviews

' A delightful book, a pleasure to read and reflect over afterwards...for humour, sprightliness and downright exuberance at being alive, Mr Selvon's people are positively Neapolitan.' SUNDAY TIMES 'Mr Selvon writes naturally in dialogue, he never lets the pace sag.' TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
