“Strangers In Another Country” – My debut book. I wrote these stories in the ´70s, during a time of economic, social, and political upheavals in America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. But the stories bear little resemblance to that time. I was of course tempted to present them in a non-fiction form, like essays or open letters. But I settled for fiction. And I´m happy I made that choice. Set in the late 60s the stories attempt to describe problems encountered by a handful of marginal men of colour with personal and social issues who find themselves on an elusive quest for a “better life” in two culturally different environments: London, England, and Stockholm, Sweden. The main characters are few, and most of them are from Guyana, a former British colony situated on the mainland of South America. The other main characters are from the English-speaking Caribbean island of Trinidad (& Tobago). There is an Afro-American and a West African.
