These stories of triumph and despair present a gallery of characters, Caribbean immigrants struggling against the odds, as they make their way through the maze of urban life. Set in Montreal, Lives breaks the stereotypes to give us a side of CanadaMoreThese stories of triumph and despair present a gallery of characters, Caribbean immigrants struggling against the odds, as they make their way through the maze of urban life. Set in Montreal, Lives breaks the stereotypes to give us a side of Canada rarely acknowledged. Mary Fellows is a sex-worker organizing a demonstration on St Catherine Street- Margaret is on a perpetual quest for a suitable man, her latest folly a suave, much younger man she brought over from Jamaica- Greta, a domestic help, proudly holds up her sons high school diploma- but can he read it? Lives adds to Thomass already considerable reputation as a chronicler of black life in Montreal.
