The Lonely Londoners
Author: Sam Selvon
Publisher: Longman Publishing Group
Release Date: January 11, 1989
From the brilliant, sharp, witty pen of Sam Selvon, his classic award-winning novel of immigrant life in London in the 1950s.
In the hopeful aftermath of war they flocked to the Mother Country — West Indians in search of a prosperous future in the "glitter-city."
Instead, they have to face the harsh realities of living hand to mouth, of racism, of bone-chilling weather and bleak prospects. Yet friendships flourish among these Lonely Londoners and, in time, they learn to survive.
