George Lamming was born in Barbados, emigrated to Britain in 1950 and became a broadcaster for the BBC. In 1967 he became writer-in-residence and lecturer at the University of West Indies. Since then he has been visiting professor at a number of European and American universities. He is the author of six highly regarded novels.Review:
'The passing of more than 40 years hasn't dulled the sheer brazen confidence with which George Lamming brought a West Indian way of seeing to British life and literature' -- Peter Hulme 'Migration in the '50s and '60s was formative for a whole generation of Caribbean writers, artists and intellectuals who, as Lamming himself says, became 'West Indian' in London. The Pleasures of Exile is simply the most poignant, eloquent, insightful and poetic set of reflections on that experience' -- Stuart Hall
