Description:

A twenty-six-year-old cricket journalist chucks his job in Bombay and arrives in Guyana, a forgotten colonial society of raw, mesmerizing beauty. Amid the alluring decay of Georgetown, on coastal sugarcane plantations, and in dark rainforests scavenged by diamond hunters, he grows absorbed with the fantastic possibilities of this new place, and prepares to mount an adventure of his own, quite beyond Guyanese borders. A dazzling novel propelled by a singularly energetic and inventive voice, The Sly Company of People Who Care is "entertaining, smart, irreverent about race and place, and well written in the extreme" (The Boston Globe).
