Summary
"Born in Jamaica, Alfred Fagon came to England at the age of 18, working first on the railways, and then enlisting in the army, where he became a boxing champion. His first London stage appearance in Mustapha Matura's Black Pieces inspired him to turn to playwriting, and he quickly became a leading figure in black theatre. With explosive consequences, his characters struggle to live in a hostile British culture as "exiles" from their West Indian spiritual home." "This collection spans the whole of Fagon's writing career from his first produced play, 11 Josephine House (1972), through The Death of a Black Man (1975), to Lonely Cowboy (1985), his last produced play."--BOOK JACKET
