Trinidad Noir




...Most Trinidadians are now intimately familiar with the details of kidnappings, murders or robberies, since these crimes have either directly or indirectly affected the majority.
“Trinidad Noir”
therefore promises to reveal aspects of noir emerging from current social conditions in Trinidad.
The anthology is divided into two sections, with eight stories under the heading “Country,” and ten under the heading “Town.”



“Trinidad Noir” is the selected title for 2011 Nalis One Book One Community reading project. Having read "Trinidad Noir" , The St James Book club met, on Friday 27 May, in discussion with writers and editors - a micro mini festival of book, talk, and food.

The throng of devotees, many carrying national flags and singing songs, had moved toward the Vatican area from all directions from before dawn to get a good spot for the Mass. more here...
