This dramatic novel from the renowned Trinidadian writer, Michael Anthony is drawn from the historic oilfield riots of 1937 - a significant event in Trinidad & Tobago’s history that led to constitutional changes such as the Adult Franchise Elections of 1946 which directly opened the road to the country's Independence 16 years later.
Kid Fearless has two fights to worry about. There is his upcoming boxing bout with Young Tiger, who is expected to eat the inexperienced Kid raw. And then there is the fight by Trinidad's oilfield workers for better wages and conditions. It is this second fight that preoccupies Kid Fearless. Butler is the only man who can stand up to the exploitative oilfield management, and even the British government, to win them all a fairer living wage. However, Butler can be rash, needing to be protected from his own actions as much as from those of his enemies.
About the author: Michael Anthony was born in Mayaro, Trinidad, in 1930. He was educated at the Mayaro R.C. School, and the Junior Technical School of San Fernando.
