The question of Caribbean definition has preoccupied a number of creative writers and critics. In this book, Odhiambo explores its effects on vision and form in each of George Lamming's novels: In The Castle of My Skin, The Emigrants , Of Age and Innocence, Season of Adventure, Water with Berries and Natives of My Person. The book attempts to delineate this through the various ways in which Lamming characterises and defines the Caribbean through the experiences of its people. Through the interrogation of the six novels the book opens new and alternative ways of understanding the Caribbean region and its people. This work is an important contribution to Post-colonial and diasporic studies.
