About the Author

Eric Walrond was born in British Guiana (now Guyana) to Barbadian parents and immigrated to New York from the Panamanian city of Colón. Walrond made a strong impression in 1920s New York. In addition to Tropic Death, he placed roughly 150 publications in nearly 40 periodicals in at least five countries. By the mid-1960s, however, the former Guggenheim Fellow had all but vanished into a quiet suburb north of London, working at an export firm near St. Paul's Cathedral. On a Monday in early August, four months before his 68th birthday, he died of a heart attack and was buried in Abney Park Cemetery.

Reviews

"Here is a book of ten stories of death which show forth with singular vividness the life of black laborers of the West Indies. There is superstition, unusual dialect, singular economic glimpses; above all, there is truth and human sympathy."


-W. E. B. DuBoise
