You could be lonely as hell in the city, then one day you look around you and you realise everybody else is lonely too
Sam Selvon is one of the greatest chroniclers of West Indian emigration; his evocation of voice, of place, of longing, defining for many the experience of a generation. Describing life in the Caribbean and in London with verve, humour and grace, this collection features many of his most acclaimed stories, including 'The Village Washer', 'The Cricket Match' and ‘My Girl and the City’.
Sam Selvon was born in Trinidad and worked as a wireless operator and reporter. In 1950 he left for the UK, where he established himself as a writer. His best-known novel was The Lonely Londoners.
