These offshore islands rise out of the water, rugged and black with deep crevices and craggy promontories. Her father used to tell the story of building the house. Dynamite under the water to blow a hole in the hill, a false plateau appearing like a shelf, the hill buckled up behind it . . . — From “The Whale House”


Sharon Millar’s calm, spare prose looks below the illusive surface of Caribbean life for uncomfortable truths about family, history, and memory. In her St Ann’s home, she skips between a writing table, a cozy library space, and a sun-drenched sofa on her porch — a space alive with light, chirping birds in the overhanging trees, and a sense of being immersed in nature. Here Millar reads and makes notes, a reminder of the simple wonders of creation that influence her writing.


Andre Bagoo Poet and journalist • debut book, Trick


Vessels, published 2012


Let the love, which is a flower, say: “His love had no end.”’ Let the flower, which is the night, say: “His love has no end.” — From “The Night Grew Dark Around Us”


The title of Andre Bagoo’s debut book hints at his fascination with riddles, nuances, and hidden meanings. He’s often found at the National Library in Port of Spain reading and researching, but he also finds inspiration roaming the city and seeking out resonant locations. One of these is St Margaret’s Church and particularly its cemetery, near his home in Belmont, which offers the human narrative of this east Port of Spain neighbourhood.
