It Falls Into Place brings together for the first time the shorter fiction of Phyllis Shand Allfrey whose novel The Orchid House is a classic of Caribbean literature. These tantalising stories set in Dominica, New York and London yet always steeped in an unmistakably West Indian identity probe beneath the surface of colonial life, often drawing on autobiographical experience. Allfrey s skill is to lead her characters of different races and cultures into unpredictable encounters where miracles can happen. With an introduction by Allfrey s biographer, Lizabeth Paravisini-Gebert, professor of Caribbean culture and literature in the department of Hispanic Studies at Vassar College, USA.
