THE FLOUR CONVOY
(Berry College, USA)
''A view of authoritarianism from very close range... The Flour Convoy makes the reader an eyewitness to the corruptive forces so common in post-colonial regimes... A wonderfully crafted plot, presented with the cripness the title convoys."
Nala Singham, Editor and Publisher, The Carribean New Yorker.
"The Flour Convoy captures the human consequences of political changes in post-colonial Guyana from the unique perspective of a West Point graduate, who served as an officer in the Guyana Defense Force... A tightly woven plot with an authenticity of place and voice."
Prakash Gossai, Bhuvaneshwar Mandir.
"The Flour Convoy follows in the grand tradition of Chinua Achebe's Anthills in the Savannah and V.S. Naipaul's A Bend in the River, but moves beyond those important works with an insider's view of the military's role in buttressing the authoritarian regime it chronicles... An informative and compelling read."
Scott Douglas Gerber, author of The Ivory Tower, published by University Press of the South.
"A writer of great creativity and wit, Chaitram Singh brings an intellectual's insight to bear on the light and dark sides of humanity in a situation that speaks of universal struggles, tragedies, and triumphs... A compelling story that keeps the reader turning pages."
Bruce Conn, author of The Curse of Durgan's Reef.
