From the Back Cover:

Warm, humorous, poignant, ' The Last Blue Dance' is a novel about coming to terms with love and loss, belonging and exile.

Boswell Anderson, a reformed gambler and rake, is proprietor of the run-down Caribbean Sunset Cafe in Hackney, far from his native Jamaica. When his friend, Stone Mason invites him to a big poker game and the chance to win – or lose- -enough money to change his life, Boswell finds the world coming into much sharper focus. In days gone by, the cafe was famous for its bacchanalian blues dances. Now, its former habitués have all returned to the Caribbean, or dream of doing so. Against this wistful, elegiac background, Boswell must come to terms with the past as well as sorting out the present, not only for himself, but also for the younger generation of his family.

' The Last Blues Dance ' is a wonderfully engaging novel which weaves together the lives of a rich cast of characters, creating a sense of both community and individuality, tenderness and suspense.
