Reading about Trinidad & Tobago: The Dragon Can't Dance

On a hot streak with the books I’m picking: The Dragon Can’t Dance by Trinidadian author Earl Lovelace is another absolute winner.

Delving into life in Calvary Hill, a marginalized neighborhood in Trinidad’s capital city of Port of Spain, this novel takes on the topics of colonialism, racism, poverty, gender roles, aging and more in the most masterful way. 70 more words


Is Just A Movie by Earl Lovelace

“De Mas In We”

Earl Lovelace’s novel is brilliantly executed,  although the writing may at first seem simplistic I admire his style which uses  an interesting narrative structure and Trinidadian patois.   524 more words
