by Harold Sonny Ladoo Dramatised by David Dabydeen and Elly Niland.

This rare Caribbean novel dramatised for radio by acclaimed poets Dabydeen and Niland, vividly depicts the terrifying world of a family brutalised by violence, poverty and nature itself.

Set in a Hindu Community in the Eastern Caribbean in 1905 during the August rainy season, it centres on a poor rice-growing family's struggle to survive.
