This edition of the novel includes a new introduction to Selvon's life and work by Susheila Nasta, as well as a preface by 'Moses' that was written in 1992 for the first US edition of the work.

About the Author:

Sam Selvon (1923-1994) was one of the most popular, prolific, and internationally distinguished of Caribbean writers. A native of Trinidad, he is best known for his vivid evocation of East Indians living in the Caribbean and Europe. Susheila Nasta is professor of modern literature at the Open University (UK) and editor of the journal Wasafiri.

Review:

"The frothy humor is barbed with a disturbing ambiguity and subversive irony.... Moses Migrating illustrates Selvon's continuing preoccupation with the theme of the exiles' displacement and lack of a firm centre." - Susheila Nasta, Critical Perspectives on Sam Selvon "Moses Migrating is a blistering critique of man's capacity for deception, self-deception and deception of others." - Roydon Salick, The Novels of Samuel Selvon"
