An introspective of the immigrant underground experience in Maryland, as seen through the lives of an unlikely cast whose incursions into Cyberia, the supernatural, and the back streets of Baltimore... More > leave behind a trail of darkness and chills. Through the eyes of undocumented Cape Verdean immigrant Mascarenhas Sonhando, this pseudo-murder mystery provokes candid discussions on race, citizenship, undocumented immigration, the 'akata' infamy, interracial America, gender roles, and the vestiges of colonization. “If an indigenous person had a choice of who his colonial oppressor (the Dutch, the French, the Swiss, the Danes, the British) should be, by far the preferred option of tormenter would surely be the Americans; to their brutality was always added a commensurate portion of compassion. They would rape you, and then rehabilitate you, complete with complimentary therapy….” Once in America though, Mascarenhas' fantasies of the black Eden quickly dissolve into a nightmare in Sodom&Gomorrah.< Less

The author is a new-comer to New Zealand. In the footsteps of Abel Tasman the author might have thought New Zealand to be a Dutch Colony! Life in the far North soon revealed characteristics that... More > proved myopic aspirations were hard at work. But the author has a contagious sense of humour. And without the fine tuned skills in English expression the inimitable style of his book adds colour and fascination to the events he describes. I think the reader will be able to identify with some of the humorous situations and has probably met some of the officious personalities who take centre stage in a parochial community. To read this book written from a fresh perspective should be a therapeutic exercise to some of us too cloistered in some secluded pockets of post-imperialism and should be on the bookshelf of every immigrant wishing to understand the heart beat of their newly elected country.< Less
