As programme director of the Bocas Lit Fest, Trinidad and Tobago’s annual literary festival, he works to bring contemporary Caribbean writers to broader audiences, with a special focus on new literary talent.

Naipaul’s family correspondence, Letters Between a Father and Son (Picador, 2009); and the anthology So Many Islands, bringing together new poems, fiction, and non-fiction from small-island countries in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Pacific, and Indian Ocean (Telegram/Peekash Press, 2018).
