“A man oughta be able to walk home drunk without some damn fool running him off the road, you know."

The hub of life in the islands is the local rum shop and though life in the Windward Islands in the Caribbean might be a little different than other places, maybe move at a slower place, the problems of life are pretty much the same as anywhere

Overview

“A man oughta be able to walk home drunk without some damn fool running him off the road, you know."

The hub of life in the islands is the local rum shop and though life in the Windward Islands in the Caribbean might be a little different than other places, maybe move at a slower place, the problems of life are pretty much the same as anywhere else. Still, some of them get seen differently.

(Also in published in Spanish as La Cantina de Ron)

Ed Teja has a gift when it comes to describing different cultures. He uses dialect so gently that it never interferes with the reader's experience, yet it imparts the genuine feel of the language, in this case the Caribbean patois. At the same time, Ed introduces a colorful cast of characters and in just a few short pages, manages to describe a major social issue within the culture of the people who live in the Caribbean. I recommend this story to anyone interested in the Caribbean.
