The Jamaican Poet Laureate Mervyn Morris has had an enormous impact on the literature of the Caribbean. Peelin Orange shows why with its wonderful mix of Englishes, its wit, its love of people and places, and its sense of transcendence.

In 1992 he was a UK Arts Council Visiting Writer-in-Residence at the South Bank Centre. His previous collections include The Pond, Shadowboxing, Examination Centre and On Holy Week; he also edited The Faber Book of Contemporary Caribbean Short Stories and published 'Is English We Speaking' and other essays. He lives in Kingston, Jamaica, where he is Professor Emeritus of Creative Writing & West Indian Literature.
