9780140039566: The Chip-chip Gatherers

The author brings to life an unforgettable cast of characters set in a tightly knit Hindu community in Trinidad, against a backdrop of the idiosyncrasies of a particular culture and the sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant truths about human society. "A compelling, tragic, painfully comic masterpiece". THE TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT.

From Library Journal:

"The author unsparingly probes the thoughts and emotional undercurrents of each character in an old-fashioned yet dexterous exposition," said LJ's reviewer of this novel (LJ 5/1/73). The Chip-Chip Gatherers features a collection of ramshackle residents of a small village in Trinidad who have long since abandoned hope. Those who don't like their novels sugar-coated will find this "good reading."
