However, if you want to learn how the locals truly live and experience the dark and often harrowing truths that lurk behind the idyllic imagery of Caribbean culture, then come visit the town of Pleasantview.

This book has already been lauded as a landmark work in international fiction. Join Celeste for a night direct from Trinidad via the lives of the Pleasantview people.
