An autobiography which covers the early part of the author's life in Guyana. It covers his family, childhood, school years, adolescence and the influences that led him to leave for Britain. The picture that emerges, is one of an extended family in a society in transition, full of many different racial types and social types too. It is a picture of a particular child in a particular society at a particular time, but also serves as a mirror to the larger society which has now vanished because of subsequent changes.
