A report from Trinidad’s Express.

The book was launched today at Soft Box Studios Gallery, Alcazar Street, St Clair, supported by an exhibition of Dixon’s travel and relationship inspired artwork. It is the first major collaboration of this nature for authors Mohammed and Dixon, who have shared a two decade long creative partnership. Trinidad-born author Mohammed is a scholar and filmmaker, currently serving as Professor of Gender and Cultural Studies at The University of the West Indies in Trinidad. Dixon, born in London, England, has lived in worked in the Caribbean since 1985, and is a globally renowned artist.
