              Set in a colonial Caribbean country in the post-war years, Stranger at the Gate is a classic Caribbean novel with the narrative drive of Hemingway, the sense of fate of classical Greek tragedy, a sensuous appreciation of Jamaica, and an acute, if indulgent, portrayal of the white... and light-brown landed and commercial elite.

Focused on the Chinese diaspora within such wide-ranging settings as London, China, California, Malaysia, and the Caribbean, these stories of compelling characters making necessary journeys are written with unwavering and painful realism, wicked humor, and lyrical imagination.

              Jamaican born, Miami resident, Geoffrey Philp finds in Xango a powerful metaphor for the rich, syncretic diversity, the multiple connections of the African person in the New World. In these poems, the god of cross-roads is both a prophetic voice of the fire to come and the creato...r who hammers out sweet sound from the iron drum.

              Told in two voices, one standard English, the other Creole, this novel is an ironic fable of a tragi-comic self-deception. It portrays the tensions between authority, freedom, law, and love in Trinidadian society through the character Manko and the stories of the other local yard... dwellers. These range from memories of Trinidad's popular uprisings to a prostitute's narrative of what has led to her occupation. In exploring the popular folk archetype of the self-crucified preacher, the novel takes the balladic form of the calypso to greater depths.
