NEW YORK NEWSDAY
It is 1964. Howard lives a hand-to-mouth existence in the small island protectorate of Barbados with his brothers, two aunts, and his grandmother. He is waiting for his parents, who left for England long ago, to send for him. And as the sparks of independence crackle all around them, Howard's life changes forever when Mr. Bradshaw, a black headmaster, is hired for his school. Howard begins to blossom under Bradshaw's guidance, and learns that neither freedom nor knowledge comes without sacrifice, and that even battles won leave victims. In this beautiful, poignant, and ultimately hopeful novel, the fate of one Bajan family rests in the hands of change--change that only liberation and learning can bring.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Vom Verlag: When Cecil Foster's NO MAN IN THE HOUSE was published, E. Annie Proulx (THE SHIPPING NEWS) proclaimed, "he shows the brave characters of West Indian women as no one else has." This is a moving and beautifully written coming-of-age story of an impoverished young boy in Barbados during its 1963 bid for independence.
