A BRIGHTER SUN

Tobacco Road in a Trinidadian setting, but with the promise of ""A Brighter Sun."" This is the story of Tiger and his child bride, Urmilla, and their strivings to earn a livelihood and find a real meaning for their living amidst the poverty-stricken, East Indian, Negro, and Chinese population of wartime Trinidad. The exotic flavor of Calypso speech and the wild gaiety of Caribbean Saturday nights are a backdrop for Tiger's painful ascent into manhood, and his pitiful yearnings toward education, that make this story universal despite its strange mores... Special.
