There have been many great and enduring works of literature by Caribbean authors over the last century. The Caribbean Contemporary Classics collection celebrates these deep and vibrant stories, overflowing with life and acute observations about society. Fifteen-year-old Shell tells his story directly and we see things through his eyes - his confusing feelings first for Rosalie, and then for Joan, his distress about the illness and death of his father, and his admiration tempered by fear of Mr. Gidharee, Rosalie's father. This iconic, universal 'coming of age' novel conveys the confusion of a teenager growing to maturity, and the difficult choices that have to be made. Shell is gradually led out of childhood and into a deeper understanding of the human condition. Suitable for readers aged 14 and above.
