Bitter-Sweet and Spice – These Things I Remembered, by F. M. COARD

What a great book. There should be a few copies in all our local Libraries. It has been out of publications for a very long time, and if you are lucky to find a hard copy online for sale, you will need to dig in your golden wallet to pay for it. 

This book is great in the sense that it gives us a very good reference as to where we were and how we have changed for good or better. Or if in fact we ever changed and just maybe those who were once at the bottom of our miserable little class society, have forgotten this history F.M. Coard so honestly documented in this book. We should all have access to a book like this and read it with no reference to the PRG or Grenadian politics of the 1980s.
