Donation Adds To Library’s West Indian Writers Collection


The book count of the West Indian Writers Collection at the Public Library got  a significant boost with the donation of five brand new novels. The gift was made on behalf of Joseph C. Pereira by his longtime friend and classmate Joseph Jones.

Joseph C Pereira is Kittitian born to an Antiguan mother and attended the St. Joseph’s Academy in Antigua. He was a graduate of the class of ’79 and worked in the UK Civil Service before taking early retirement and moving to Rome where he now lives with his wife Ornella and young daughter Alessia

His trilogy of fiction novels, The Fallen One, The Hidden King and The Turning, explore rich realms of fantastic medieval type landscapes, events and characters, and blends them effortlessly with science fiction and gripping human drama.

For those less inclined to this genre, there’s also a couple of novelettes. A Place to Belong traces the adventures of a young man of mixed heritage trying to find his identity while struggling with the seedier side of city life. I Once Was offers a glimpse into the harsh, crime riddled life of  homeless Gypsy children in Rome, but with an intriguing twist.

Stop by the Public Library soonest to give them a read. If you would rather cuddle up with your own personal copies, or probably present them as gifts, these titles can be purchased online at Amazon Books. Just type in “J C Pereira” in the search and they should pop up.
