The stories, all good reads, deal with serious current issues of ...politics, economics, race, sex, land appropriation and identity...these are hopeful stories...(Robert Edison Sandiford author of THE TREE OF YOUTH and other stories)(Edison T. Williams) is a story teller! He has the technique of gripping the reader from the beginning. (His) endings are classic Somerset Maugham/O. Henry. I have my favourites among the stories, Desmond Lola and Bassman is fascinating...The New Sybaris is a riveting read... Island Man is captivating... but I really loved them all. (Peter Laurie, author of MAUBYS QUEST FOR THE MAGIC FLOWER and other books.)A well prepared potpourri lovingly served with gentle humour and a dash of nostalgia.
