Overview

Love, lust and loss, sex and skullduggery, conquests, failures, foibles – these are the elements of calypso, the stories in song that personify the islands of the West Indies. The three stories in this volume deal with love in the Caribbean -- young love, mature love, and love for the juice from the sweet sugar cane.

“Please, oh please,” Caterina sobbed as she sat cross-legged in front of the closet, speaking to its door. This was her wedding night, her night of nights, but her new husband has serious wedding night jitters and has locked himself in that closet. Can she coax him out and to their wedding bed? Will his love be like his rum, intoxicating all night long? Or will that closet door stay locked?
Also in this volume: Island in the Sun They told Santo his olive tree would never thrive in the islands but didn’t he prove them wrong. Sweet Sugar Cane A cautionary tale about how a business transaction can go awry when it involves lots of rum.
