THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF PARAS P. by Kevin Baldeosingh
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 19, 1996

"An entertaining debut, and a concept with a refreshing Caribbean slant, but marred by too many a flat joke and would-be significant aside."
First-time novelist and journalist Baldeosingh strains to amuse as he satirizes contemporary folly on the island of Trinidad (and everywhere else) with the fictional autobiography of a preternaturally obtuse advocate of ``Correctness.'' The late Paras P., born Paras Parmanandsingh, so organized his life—and his death—that as he's lowered into his grave, his voice is heard saying, ``Make sure the grave is exactly six feet deep.'' A careful man, Paras had taped the instructions for his own funeral, and it was just such foresighted action that had earned him fame and fortune as the founder of the Centre for Correctness.
