Richard Daybell – Novels, stories and short humor
I loved everything about Richard Daybell’s Calypso–its Caribbean vibe, its linguistic rhythms, its gently swaying booze hounds, expats, and pirate wannnabes, all with wobbly teeter-totters where most people keep a conscience and a sense of ethics. Calypso is jammed with what the world needs more of–characters. But most especially, I liked the comeuppance-with-a-wink that Daybell dishes out in every tale. Hilarious!
Think P.G. Wodehouse, swimming in jerk sauce… P.B.
A wonderful collection of tales, entertaining, evocative, flawless. They took me right back to the Islands–to the people, the beaches, the bars, and the great West Indies tunes. B.C.
