The man who loved attending funerals and other stories by Frank A Collymore( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frank Collymore was at the centre of the West Indian literary renaissance of the forties and fifties. He was a master of the short story, bringing together a mordant wit and a sympathetic understanding of human failings to tackle subjects ranging from the eccentric to the psychotic." "This collection includes 'Shadows', a sombre depiction of alienation, a satirical dissection of social climbing in 'RSVP to Mrs Bush-Hall', and in 'The Snag' a young boy's growing pains are written about with gentle irony."--Jacket

The Penguin book of Caribbean short stories( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spanning the history of the genre, this major anthology reflects the enormous diversity and richness of Caribbean writing." "E. A. Markham's generous selection includes pre-Columbian legends and myths deriving from India and Africa, a mildly Gothic tale from Frank Collymore, updated Anancy stories from Andrew Salkey, a sermon preached by a bishop and the documented experience of Sistren in the 1970s. Many of the stories are an evocative reminder of the turbulent history of the regionenforced transportation of Africans, East Indian indenture and subsequent migration. There are stories from Eric Walrond and Claude McKay, who contributed to the Harlem Renaissance, and works of social realism by, among others, C. L. R. James and Seepersad Naipaul, part of the literary awakening in Trinidad in the late 1920s."--BOOK JACKET
