TRINIDAD: ROCK HARD AND FRUITY is a book for fans of travel, people and foreign places. Peter Jarrette is a shrewd observer of characters and situations. He is a past master at social commentary. TRINIDAD ROCK HARD AND FRUITY tells of unfolding events for "the artist" and his European wife when they switch cities from London, England to Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, the artist's original Caribbean island home. It is the mid 1990'S. Under a tropical sun are many shadows. Rock Hard and Fruity dissects island life as the couple settle into local ways, trying to make a go of blending in with a much different culture than the one they have left behind. TRINIDAD ROCK HARD AND FRUITY explores the sexual climate in a tropical idyll. It eyes up topical issues of race, social structures and social exclusion in a part of the world you thought you knew from travel brochures. It listens to the "pong," or gossip while teaching you the local creole terminology. It lets you watch the local TV and international imported shows and spanks Caribbean Cable and Wireless. It takes you shopping on hot days for fresh meat and tagliatelli. It's got hills, bush, beach, sex, stalkers, bitches, booze, badness, corruption, cars, crashes, and at least one Carnival. There is more to life in the Caribbean than holiday resorts that teach you little of the cultures that surround you. Jarrette is a world traveller and 'lives' in the cities and countries he explores. He finds their humour and shares it out to more
