Phases is a collection of over fifty dew‑drenched poems that speak powerfully to a past when living was peaceful and growing up was fun, and a present whose dynamic invokes nostalgia and a craving for a return to the past. Like a surgeon with a scalper, Phases dissects St. Lucian society to reveal and diagnose its spiritual and social ills. Yet like an artist with a paintbrush, the book celebrates the uniqueness and hence the very essence of our culture.

The Brown Curtains follows a group of Guyanese professionals as they migrate to St. Lucia to take advantage of better pay, as such the novel presents a lesson in racial, cultural and religious tolerance that has important implications for the CSME and Caribbean integration. And as one of the few West Indian novels to explore intra-Caribbean migration and cultural differences among CARICOM countries, The Brown Curtains is indeed a path making work of art.
