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.

"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."
