From the Caribbean Beat archive

Many CRB readers, I suspect, are also readers of the CRB's "sister" magazine, Caribbean Beat. Over the years, Beat has run hundreds of short book reviews and dozens of in-depth profiles of Caribbean writers, from eminences like Derek Walcott, Wilson Harris, and V.S. Naipaul, to the brightest talents of the current literary generation. And many of these pieces are online, in the ever-expanding Caribbean Beat archive. So here, dear readers, are some possibilities for Thursday morning reading: a selection of profiles from the last four years of Caribbean Beat:

"The view from Coyaba"--a profile of Peter Abraham by Jane Bryce (May/June 2003)

"Finding her way home"--a profile of Edwidge Danticat by Mariel Brown

"The man who loved to have fun"--a profile of Frank Collymore by Philip Nanton (January/February 2004)

"Looking back in anger"--a profile of Jamaica Kincaid by Jeremy Taylor (May/June 2004)

"Missing in action"--a profile of Albert Gomes by Jeremy Taylor (July/August 2004)

"Voyager in the dark"--a profile of Jean Rhys by Jeremy Taylor (November/December 2004)

"Writing is believing"--a profile of Nalo Hopkinson by Kellie Magnus (May/June 2005)

"Guyana don"--a profile of David Dabydeen by John Mair (September/October 2005)

"Speaking back to home"--a profile of Olive Senior by Martin Mordecai (July/August 2006)
