Most of his fiction has taken the form of novels, beginning with A Casual Brutality (1988), set in the fictional Caribbean republic of Casaquemada. The Innocence of Age (1993) is the story of intergenerational tensions in an increasingly racist Toronto. Bissoondath's novels often focus on characters confronting their respective pasts.

Neil Bissoondath: A Casual Brutality. The president and his henchmen practice casual brutality

Neil Bissoondath: A Casual Brutality. The novel is set on the fictional island of Casaquemada (Spanish for Burnt House) which may or may not be Trinidad. Dr. Raj Ramsingh is from Casaquemada but has done his medical training in Canada. He returned to Casaquemada but is now planning to leave the island again. The president and his henchmen practice casual brutality. The book is told in flashbacks so that we gradually learn about Ramsingh’s earlier life and, in particular, the traditional way of life of his family. He left to study medicine but also to avoid falling into his family’s way of life (he was expected to take over his grandfather’s shop).

Neil Bissoondath dans A Casual Brutality (Retour à Casaquemada) et The Worlds Within Her (Tous ces mondes en elle). En comparant le traitement. de la mémoire par les deux romanciers, l'auteur présente The Swinging Bridge comme une des fictions dystopiques de N. Bissoondath qui permettrait au sujet diasporique de composer avec un passé traumatique et de cartographier de nouveaux lieux transculturels, où le. même et l'autre sont réconciliés.

What really has brought Dr Raj Ramsingh back from Toronto's urbanity to this Caribbean island of his birth? Has he been seduced, like so many, by the lure of Casaquemada's easy, oil-acquired wealth? But now the flow of money is drying up, the orgy of acquisition replaced by the anger of sudden deprivation. The economic boom has left in its wake a dislocated society, fraught with violence and fear.
  • Very different than what I expected.

  • I was not interested in the characters or the story.
