Discussing the era of Caribbean migration, he writes that "the docking of the SS Empire Windrush at Tilbury Docks in did not herald the beginning of multiracial Britain In fact, as Sandhu points out, Selvon's techniques and language are sophisticated and complex. He sounds every inch the infuriated shopkeeper, appalled at every assault on property. Spurning criticism of his characters, Sandhu writes approvingly: Because of his utopian bent, Sandhu is uncomfortable with some writers whom he cannot avoid discussing. In a useful revisiting of Sam Selvon's reputation, Sandhu takes George Lamming to task for his somewhat patronising description of Selvon as a "peasant writer". What Windrush actually symbolised was a period when the establishment of a black British population, and ensuing conflicts such as the Notting Hill riots, became a central issue of political and social life in Britain.

Description:Here is cinematic confirmation of the city as a place of unpredictable pairings and joyful miscegenation. He becomes the former slave Mungo, an old man pressed for his recollections of slavery by Mr Pringle of the Abolition Committee, who is ghost-writing his story. The prose plods and stutters, the characters are poorly imagined ciphers, the plots are endlessly derivative versions of the American mafia genre, filtered through a line of B movies. The mids mark an important shift in London's identity, as the imperialist institutions that previously knitted together race, citizenship and nationality were dismantled - a process duly recorded by Selvon, Lamming, Naipaul and Andrew Salkey. The chief villain of this book is Mrs Thatcher, who is seen as embodying a life-denying antagonism to cultural diversity and as having encouraged all the other enemies to urban grooviness: This tendency hardens as the book progresses.
