Robert Edison Sandiford moved from Canada to his parents' native Barbados in 1996. He went for 'wife and work' - his new bride was a Bajan, and he had landed an editor's position at the leading daily newspaper. Yet his journey 'Back Home' also led to a series of insightful and often poignant meditations on relationships, island life, and the decline of his father, diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease twelve years earlier.
