    One thought on “Derek Walcott: A Caribbean Life”

    1. This feels like it will be superb.I was listening to one of my poetry podcasts and they commented that Obama was seen carrying a book by Derek Walcott, so I m investigating Walcott, since I ve never heard of him.I m just pleased as punch that we have a President who carries books of poetry around on his daily activities.So much detail in this book I made it half way through and will have to check it out again as my renewal allowances are done.
