Book Synopsis
‘My life’, he says. ‘has been an odyssey of unusual jobs that were varied, questionable behavior that lasted longer than it should have, in places that were always far away.’ He lived in Denmark, in England, in Italy, and in France. He’s comfortable in more languages than one. As a young’ boy, Point Fortin, the bustling 1950’s oil-town in south Trinidad was his stomping ground. Presently he resides in New York City, the ‘only place’ he’s ever regarded, as home. As poet and novelist he is self-taught. He’s had his run-ins with the law. He refers to cops as ‘the doggas.’ Beyond these facts, not much is known about E. C. Maxwell. And perhaps preferring to play second-fiddle to his craft, he might not wish it otherwise. A lover of music, among his poems are tributes to jazz artists Max Roach, Billie Holiday and cellist Jacqueline du Pre. These poems, together with his works of fiction, Cafeteria of Crime (Cafe du Mal), A Station in Midgard, allow us at least a glimpse into the mind of the man his friends call ‘Brooks’ or ‘Cooks’. In step, we imagine him, not only to the beat of a different drum, but attuned perhaps, to thunder he alone must hear.
