Boston. 1967. Little Brown. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 250 pages. hardcover. keywords: Literature Caribbean Canada Black. inventory # 22896. FROM THE PUBLISHER - The related themes of loneliness, self-hatred, and cultural exclusion are the main concerns of Clarke's Canadian trilogy, THE MEETING POINT, STORM OF FORTUNE, and THE BIGGER LIGHT. The three works center on the lives of a group of West Indians in Toronto—especially Bernice Leach, her sister Estelle, Boysie Cumberbatch, his wife Dots, and Henry White. THE MEETING POINT concentrates on Bernice's experiences as a maid in the home of the wealthy Burrmann family, and emphasizes the usual themes of sexual loneliness, cultural isolation, and the sense of economic exploitation. THE MEETING POINT is a harsh and poignant account of the lives of Barbadian immigrants in the white-dominated and socially ossified Toronto of the 1960s. Bookseller Inventory # 22896
