De Rightest Place

Indira Gabriel, recently abandoned by her lover, embarks on a project to reinvigorate a dilapidated bar into something special. Like a Trinidadian Cheers, a rich cast of characters come together in this warm, funny, sexy, and bittersweet first novel. At the book’s centre is the unforgettable Indira, with her ebullience and sadness, her sharpness and honesty, obsession with the daily horoscope and addiction to increasingly absurd self-help books. Age is of no concern to Barbara Jenkins, or good writing. At the age of 76 she has produced some of the best comic writing to come out of the Caribbean since early V.S. Naipaul, Sam Selvon and Earl Lovelace.
