What was it like to be a small boy growing up in Kingston, Jamaica in the 1930s? "When Me Was a Boy" tells exactly what it was like. Charles Hyatt remembers his boyhood in vivid detail, and in his own inimitable voice talked about it in his radio programme "When Me Was a Boy". In this selection from those pieces, Hyatt brings his school days to life: the tramcar and horse-and-buggy days when cars were few and far between and taking a walk was a social occasion. These are hilarious moments - look out for the "Black Heart Man" - and historic ones, and Hyatt's sharp observation and remarkable memory put us right on the spot sharing his feelings and experiences.

Review:

"This tidy little book ... offers an insight into social life in Jamaica over fifty years ago. It is written in Jamaican creole, Hyatt style. It is a boy's vision recaptured several years later and written with good humour. It can only be a fragment of Jamaican social history since it addresses the experiences of one man, his family and associates. It would be a major service to social historians if more Jamaicans do what Charles Hyatt has done."

About the Author:

Charles Hyatt had been a storyteller since he was a boy. His tremendous gift for acting and his ability to entertain meant that his direction in life was clear. One of Jamaica's best-loved theatrical personalities, he had a wealth of experience overseas in radio, television and film which he used to further the arts at home in Jamaica. He died in December 2006.
