FROM THE PUBLISHER - A calypso bandleader, Lord Short Shoe, schemes with a sexy black singer to bilk an American out of his pride and his companion monkey. Two poor islanders stumble in a violent encounter that might just escalate into revolution. And an entire island bureaucracy casually confounds the attempts of a hotel owner to get his dead mother out of the freezer.
