Anansi, Jan 1, 1974 - 110 pages
"Yesterdays is a bawdy, outrageously funny novel of West Indian life, detailing young Poonwa's attempt to launch a Hindu Mission to Canada. Dominating the story is Choonilal, pressured to sell his property to finance this dubious scheme. We meet the motley cast of village characters, and the intrigue is enriched by a wealth of island lore, as everyone gossips and reminisces about their own yesterdays."
