Shifting between the Caribbean and America, these stories arrive doused in magic, musicality and humor. From the title story about a man trapped in the nightmarish glare of post 9/11 scrutiny after he forgets a bag in Grand Central Station; to the deliciously funny yet poignant "Sweet Destine" about a man unable to deal with his wife’s sexual awakening after they emigrate to America; or the darkly comic "Licks Like Peas", Lovell’s lyrical prose delights and captures the vibrant rhythms of love, longing and loss rooted in the Caribbean soul where home is not always where the heart is.
