Set in the Caribbean island of Trinidad, Kevin Baldeosingh's hilarious satire presents the inimitable Paras P. Discover the undiluted truth about the self-declared anti-revolutionary of the order of Jesus Christ and Mahatma Gandhi, the Founder of the Centre for Correctness. With a little help from a tape recorder, Paras P. reveals all we need to know about politics, religion, the media, marriage and sexual norms. This witty commentary on the hypocrisies of modern life demonstrates the truth that 'Against the assault of laughter, nothing will stand' (Mark Twain)."In a fit of comic brilliance, Baldeosingh...has invented the Zelig-like Paras Parmanandansingh...But what is central is Baldeosingh's sharp but loving satiric commentary on all facets of Caribbean life--identity and self-hatred, the place of women and, above all, the inescapable love-hate relationship with the Empire." - Publishers Weekly starred review
Paras P. is the most correct person in Trinidad, shown by the popularity of his "Centre of Correctness," This candid autobiography illustrates how Paras' whole life has been geared to being "proper," from early days learning the Queen's English to life as the most upright of politicians. Pity that Paras never noticed the laughter and ridicule permeating all the tapes he has of his doings...
Full of wit and wisdom, "The Autobiography of Paras P." is a tongue-in-cheek glimpse into the life of one man who honestly believes he is the last bastion of morality in Trinidad.
