IN THE CASTLE OF MY SKIN BY GEORGE LAMMING PDF

Background[ edit ] In the Castle of My Skin has been characterised by Sandra Pouchet Paquet as an "autobiographical novel of childhood and adolescence written against the anonymity and alienation from self and community the author experienced in London at the age of twenty-three.

England was not for us a country with classes and conflicts of interest like the islands we left.
