Top 10 books about Trinidad and Tobago

Written by Claire Adam for The Guardian on Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

Forget all the old-time books, here is one about the Trinidad of today, teeming with life and up-to-date Trini humour and steamy sex scenes. The action largely takes place a pub in Port of Spain and follows the antics of a wide cast of local characters of all races, religions and social classes. In the middle of it all is Indira, whose lover has recently left her, and who, at the beginning of the novel, takes stock of her assets in life. “Young, good looking, nice body,” she writes, admiring herself in the mirror. Read it first yourself, and then press it into the hands of the Trinidadians in your life.
