About The Book
In the town of Cascadu, Trinidad, the 1970 Black Power rebellion has failed. Sonnyboy, hapless and luckless, is desperate to be recognised as part of the rebellion and forces the uninterested police to arrest him. KingKala, a singer, returns from detention and is sidelined in the calypso tent, his music dated and unfashionable. They now hope to make their name in the movie that is being shot on the island — but that too does not end as expected.
And so we follow the townsfolk through their experiments in music, politics, religion and love; as, in their day-to-day adventures — be it a game of cricket, the short life of a corner shop or a miracle at a funeral — they begin to see more clearly what their community has to offer for its liberation.
Sad and uplifting, humorous but never mocking, Is Just a Movie is a warm, gentle novel about small moments of magic in ordinary life.
