The Lost Love Songs of Boysie Singh

£20.00

£20 ticket price includes a signed, first edition hardback of The Lost Love Songs of Boysie Singh

From the award-winning author of Love After Love, comes an epic of wonder, danger and risk

This is a story is unforgettable story of four incredible women:

Popo – brilliant, vulnerable and stuck. She’s determined to free herself from the traps of her past.
Mana Lala – a devoted mother – her only connection to her man is their little boy, and she will do anything to protect him.
For Doris, her husband presents the opportunity to climb the social ladder. She knows the awful stories, but she’s sure they won’t be hers.
Rosie just wants to mind her business, her lover, Etta, and her store.

Four separate lives are connected and controlled by one man: the notorious, charismatic gangster Boysie Singh. Pull up a chair and let these women tell of the man they believed could love, help or free them, and how some of them survived to tell a tale at all.

Although this is a tremendous work of fiction, Boysie Singh was a real person, who altered many, many lives in Trinidad. Ingrid’s research into his life is mind-blowing. We are very excited about this event.
