Barrington Wright

is a native Jamaican whose writing was inspired by various civil rights giants. In this novel, he is your tour guide through a segment of Jamaica’s overgrown pathway to freedom, where some people were trapped at the bottom of the social pyramid. His path through prevailing experiences on Jamaican plantations and the social environment of Coronation Market is lit by reflection and imagination. He obtained his formal education in Kingston, Jamaica; London, England; Montreal, Canada and in New York City, where he received a postgraduate degree in Public Administration. He retired from public service after serving as Assistant Commissioner at New York City’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development. His writing confirms that he retains his interest in complex social issues and his sense of humor.
