Rhoda Bharath

Rhoda Bharath was born and lives in Trinidad. A writer, lecturer and blogger, she teaches at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine. Her story collection The Ten Days Executive (Peepal Tree Press) brings a very contemporary Trinidad of the internet and social media into an urgent but complex focus. Told through a distinctive range of individual voices, they visit the domestic and public spaces of a country moving too fast between the knowing innocence of its past and the experience of a globalized present where the words “shipping and transportation” have quite a different meaning in the thesaurus of the street corner.
