    1 thought on “A Day in the Country and Other Stories

    1. Having lived in Trinidad for the past three years, it was good to read stories that spoke to life back in the 1940s It is always great to get a glimpse into what Trinidad was like in that era A decent nostalgic look into life in Trinidad in the 1940s

    2. Quite a sad collection of stories They express a nostalgia for the Trinidad of the mid twentieth century, whilst also depicting the levels of domestic violence, ignorance and superstition that caused this and many other writers to emigrate to north America and Europe.
