Sensitive and imaginative, this collection of short stories explores the Jamaican male psyche through free-flowing narratives, stories within stories, and modern versions of folktales and myths. Structured around the author’s lifetime of experiences within a small Jamaican community, these touching stories explore modern issues relating to men—from the repercussions associated with absentee fathers to the creation of warm, loving home environments.
