Easy in the Islands
A calypso bandleader, Lord Short Shoe, schemes with a sexy black singer to bilk an American out of his pride and his companion monkey. Two poor islanders stumble in a violent encounter that might just escalate into revolution. And an entire island bureaucracy casually confounds the attempts of a hotel owner to get his dead mother out of the freezer. Infused with the rhythms and the beat of the Caribbean, these vivid tales of paradise sought and paradise lost are as lush, steamy, and invigorating as the islands themselves.
