A Brief Conversion and Other Stories

Published by Persia Books on 30th August 2002

In thirteen vivid stories, award-winning author Earl Lovelace paints a compassionate, often humorous portrait of everyday life in Trinidad. Ordinary people like Victor the barber, Shoemaker Arnold, Miss Ross (once the most sought-after woman in Cunaripo), and Blues and Joebell (both eager to see new lands) are invested with the magic of their colorful, changing world. Written with Lovelace’s characteristic ear for melody and rhythm, A Brief Conversion and Other Stories is an invaluable contribution to contemporary world literature.
