Those Who Eat the Cascadura

 

Sam Selvon

"I see trouble. Plenty trouble."

The village obeahman Manko foresees trouble when an English-man Garry Johnson comes to stay in the cacao estate of his friend Roger Franklin in Trinidad. Before long his prophecy is fulfilled when the visitor falls in love with the lovely Indian Sarojini. What had been a carefree atmosphere quickly evaporates, replaced with a tension-filled air of jealousises, rivalries and intrigues as three races interact in post-independence Trinidad. 

“Selvon writes with great charm”
—The New York Times


"His evocative descriptions . . . his humourous affectionate portrayal of character and his subtle use of folklore . . . are evidence of a master yarn-spinner." 
—The Globe and Mail

"A simple, lyrical, moving writer."
— New Statesman
