Happy 92nd birthday to #GeorgeLamming ! The eminent Barbadian novelist, essayist, and poet was born on this day in 1927. [Photo: John Stevenson]

Barbadian writer George Lamming's outstanding novel about coming of age in colonial-era Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago, and 50s England. Somerset Maugham Award. My father's study had every book imaginable and this was one of them. My brothers and sisters and I read until we were red-eyed. #georgelamming  #barbados  #carringtonvillage  #trinidadandtobago  #derekwalcott  #richardwright  #jeanpaulsartre  #memories  #lovereading

Make Some Space: Ancestors #4 ‘In The Castle Of My Skin’ George Lamming (Penguin) . I took notice of George Lamming’s use of repetition. I love the way his writing pulses. It’s such a fine novel, and he uses repetition in such a beautiful and layered way. He tells the story of a community without having to resort to simple or reductive characters and I tried to bring the characters in the TRC story to life without pinning them down. I wanted readers to be able to imagine them. One of the early readers noticed this absence and said it’d be better if I helped the reader along with some description, so I went through, right at the end, and wrote one line of description for most of the TRC-era characters. I wanted all of it to connect as much as possible and if providing a description allowed people to connect – then I wanted to provide it. .

Appropriate reading ahead of seeing Sons Of Kemet tonight (plus a lovely Karmeliet) #meteomulhouse  #sonsofkemet  #georgelamming  #penguinmodernclassics 

1948, Barbados . Precise villiage location unknown as it was islandwide . "But the season of flood would change everything. The floods could level the stature and even conceal the identity of the village. With the turn of my ninth year it happened again. From the window I looked at the uniform wreckage of a village at night in water. My mother said it was a shame, as was everything that displeased her. And even after many years I would try to fix her label. What precisely was a shame? Was it the weather or the village or the human condition in which and in spite of which the poor had sworn their loyalty to life?"

I was a new person then, I knew things I had not known before, I knew things that you can know only if you have been through what I had just been through - The Autobiography of My Mother by Jamaica Kincaid. Haven't posted in a while since I was finishing my dissertation! These are some of the books I used in it. I would recommend anything by Jamaica Kincaid, who I mainly wrote about, but also Edwidge Danticat or George Lamming. I love Kincaid's work even more now I've studied her, which is good because I was afraid it might be the opposite! Now the vacation has started though I am excited to read something unrelated to my course 😬😂! Kincaid's novels and short stories are stunningly written, moving and often shocking, and I discover something new every time i reread them. They often chart the growing up of a young West Indian woman, who chooses to leave her family and home behind to stake her own place in a hostile world. It often feels like you're reading poetry. Has anyone else read Kincaid?
