Man Who Ran Away and Other Stories of Trinidad in the 1920s and 1930s by Alfred H. Mendes

Book Description

Alfred H. Mendes was a member of the Beacon group of writers in Trinidad in the 1930s and friend and colleague of C.L.R. James and Ralph de Boissiere. He was a prolific writer, with a distinctive and engaging voice, and he wrote a significant number of short stories, many of which have never been published and most of which were written between 1920 and 1940. "The Man Who Ran Away" is a collection of twelve stories with an introduction and short glossary of Trinidadian Creole words and phrases. The book is useful as a text for university literature courses, with an introduction designed for students unfamiliar with Mendes's work, but not so dauntingly academic as to discourage a general readership.
