Book Description

‘What madman doing wid white woman?’Aloysius is a homeless madman whose only company is the animals, trees and bushes of the woodlands in which he resides, on the outskirts of a village in the hills of St. Ann. Aloysius is lonely. Admittedly, these animals, trees, and especially the bushes have a lot to say, and undeniably, the flame heart tree is a true friend, but Aloysius has no human friends – that is, until he meets Inga, the German tourist. Inga encounters a sleeping Aloysius when she is traversing the countryside photographing the island’s flora and fauna. Thereafter, to the tree’s horror and the bushes’ and village’s disapproval, Aloysius’s world is turned upside down as he finds himself hurtling along in a series of crazy escapades with his newfound love – and with the subsequently recruited third member of the ménage a trois: Service, the nihilistic butcher.Along the way, in this outrageously out-of-order, hilarious novel, the reader discovers that madness is by no means restricted to Aloysius; and that goodness and forgiveness may be rarer qualities, found in unexpected places.Please note that this is an eBook version of this title and can NOT be printed.
