bean literary terrain, but there is
more than a hint of Trini engage-
ment of diversity and conflict.
The 492-page work of speculative
fiction places the ancient Hebrew
patriarch Abraham, at the age of
20, smack in the middle of modern
Israel and with a mission to find a

Jagdeo has in fact steered readers
through an extensive proselytic
