Lovelace, Earl.

London: Faber and Faber, 2011. 1st ed. 8vo, wrps, 335 p., New Paperback 9780571255672 In the town of Cascadu, Trinidad, the 1970 Black Power rebellion has failed. Sonnyboy, hapless and luckless, is desperate to be recognized 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. Sad and uplifting, humorous but never mocking, "Is Just a Movie" is a warm, gentle novel about small moments of magic in ordinary life. (Item ID: 151781)
