I like to read books based on the place I am travelling…it can be the author who is from that place or the theme is based on the region, and I already have a list of Caribbean themed books to start the year. First I will finish…
Long Song – Andrea Levy
Voyage into Hell – Steven Siguaw
A few years ago I read “An Embarrassment of Mangoes” by Ann Vanderhoof. Ann, and husband Steve, took a work sabbatical to sail down to the Caribbean. While island-hopping around the Caribbean, Ann indulged her passion for cooking using local produce and each chapter of the book ends with local island recipes. It is a lovely book, and such a pleasant surprise to be moored next to Ann & Steve here in Trinidad!
Miguel Street, a novel based in Port of Spain, the capital city of Trinidad and written by V S Naipaul, born in Trinidad.
Caribbean – James A Michener
A Caribbean Mystery – Agatha Christie
I am now reading…Treasure Island – Robert Louis Stevenson
