The first Indian indentured laborers came to the Caribbean more than150 years ago, and their traditional values have had to confront a rapidly changing world in 20th century Trinidad. Highway in the Sun tells the story of Tiger and Urmilla’s first year of marriage away from their extended family and their struggles relating to their new Afro-Creole neighbors in the suburbs of Port of Spain. In Home Sweet India, Johnny is dismayed by his loss of culture and threatened by the emergence of Creole nationalism, and plans to return to India. In Turn Again Tiger, Tiger learns that he must not turn his back on his Indian past. These plays demonstrate the choices Indians in the Caribbean must make between tradition and creolization.

About the Author:

Samuel Selvon is the author of several novels and plays, including A Brighter Sun, An Island Is a World, The Lonely Londoners, and Moses Migrating.

Review:

" . . . The dreams and frustration of rural Trinidad are at the centre of Selvon's prose, which carries the poetry and figurative energy of the words which tumble from the poor of his island. Highway in the Sun is a vibrant text of Selvon's brilliant re-creation of his people's tongue."  —Chris Searle, The Morning Star
