Sinopse

This collection, unique to contemporary Trinidad and Tobago, shows Baptiste equally adept at the short story as with the novel. Stories range from the love song of Samo and his dulahins, to a ghetto youth in Simon and The Babylon, to the acid vision of arranged marriages reflected in Her Bitter Life. "Pages are littered with the sardonic humor and colloquialism of Paul Keen Douglas, the incomparable prose of Samuel Selvon, and the hauntingly poetic verses of?Pearl Springer. To the very end, Boy Days refuses to surrender. Lyndon Baptiste is that good." - Dr Glenville Ashby, Trinidad Guardian "Witty and comical, yet bearing profound messages... that's Boy Days!" - Dexter Emrit, author of Awakening the Spirit... You Can! "These stories make us laugh, but also beg us to look at how we see Trinidad life and values as they relate to our day-to-day beliefs." - Nellon Hunte, WINTV News Anchor "A very lively bunch of stories with variations in structure, style and language to satisfy readers in both reflective and upbeat moods." - Polly Pattullo, Papillote Press" This collection of short stories is a potent indication of the fertile mind that drives the writing output of Lyndon Baptiste. These sto-ries whilst potent pieces of writing in themselves evoke in the mind of the reader the need for the story lines to be expanded to full novel size as the complexities and motivations of their central characters surpass the size limits of a short story." - Daurius Figueira, Social Researcher and Author
