Bookshelf 2023: The Stranger Who Was Myself

Written by Richard Price and Sally Price for New West Indian Guide on Wednesday, January 31st, 2024
Once again in this memoir, detailed description overflows: childhood homes (kitchens, latrines, furniture), clothing, foods, uncles and aunts, and the convent school (where she later served for three years as a teacher). Then on to England and university life at Aberystwyth—the first-class voyage of this innocent on the French Line is a highlight. [...] These reminiscences, often self-deprecating and lightly humorous, cover her first three decades and end when she, the husband whom she met at university, and their new baby set sail for Trinidad, where she’s been based for the past half-century.
