[...] I savour the prose. It is delicate, refined and measured, yet the subtly woven dashes of vernacular give it the truth that speaks of home [...] There are several outstanding elements of this book apart from it being a biographical work on a celebrated figure in the calypso pantheon (we need more of our stories to be told!), Joseph has done a formidable amount of research [...] His use of language is an exquisite rendition of the way we speak, influenced by the poet and musician he is.
