Waardering en recensie van The Housing Lark

  • “Irreverent, spirited … a seriously funny novel.” (New York Review of Books)

Flaptekst van de roman van Sam Selvon

Sitting in his cramped basement room in Brixton, Battersby dreams of money, women, a T-bone steak – and a place to call his own. So he and a group of friends decide to save up and buy a house together. But amid grasping landlords, the temptations of spending money and the less-than-welcoming attitude of the Mother Country, can this motley group of hustlers and schemers, Trinidadians and Jamaicans, men and women make their dreams a reality?
