The Obeah Man
Tuesday: Port of Spain, Trinidad. Into this heady
bacchanalian atmosphere, filled with men and women seeking
the sinful anonymity of costumes, in street processions
gyrating to the music of steel bands and in bars packed
beyond capacity, where menace seems familiar but lurks in
unknown places - comes the Obeah Man, Zampi, in search of
the beautiful Zolda.
By the time the festivities are over, disaster has struck, and the powerful but good Obeah Man Zampi has learnt an all too human lesson in love.
Introduction by Roydon Salick
“A brilliant revelation of the dark reality under a lively Caribbean surface, The Obeah Man combines the humour of Samuel Selvon, the pathos of George Lamming and the irony of V S Naipaul all in one.”
—Frank Birbalsingh, York University
“ . . . a compelling story of living in changing times . . . its message and impressions are long lasting . . . The Obeah Man is a very human story.”
—Cecil Foster, The Toronto Review
