Synopsis: First published by Anansi in 1972, No Pain Like This Body remains a classic of Canadian and Caribbean writing. Set in a turn-of-the-century Hindu community in the Eastern Caribbean, the novel describes the perilous existence of a poor rice-growing family during the August rainy season. Their struggles to cope with illness, a drunken and unpredictable father, and the violence of the elements end in unbearable loss. Through vivid, vertiginous prose, and with brilliant economy and originality, Ladoo creates a fearful world of violation and grief, in the face of which even the most despairing efforts to endure stand out as acts of raw courage.
About the Author: Harold Sonny Ladoo is the author of Yesterdays. He was born in Trinidad before he went abroad, emigrating to Canada in 1968. He died an untimely and violent death on a visit home to Calcutta Settlement, Trinidad, at the age of 28. Dionne Brand is the author of At the Full and Change of the Moon, Land to Light On, and A Map to the Door of No Return.
