The Schoolmaster (Caribbean Writers Series) by Earl Lovelace

Earl Lovelace's Trinidadian novel tells the story of an isolated rural community coming into contact with the woder world. The villagers learn, only too cruelly, that progress can mean the destruction of cherished values.


?I trust Lovelace's creative rendering of contemporary Trinidadian social history, the immediacy of the native rootedness in storytelling, and, above all, his persuasive moral comedy.?-World Literature Today
