    • THE GAMES WERE COMING was written by Michael Anthony in 1962. It tells the story of a cyclist, Leon, preparing for the track racing during the early 1950s in Trinidad. In the mixture is the Carnival and Leon’s girl friend who is wondering if he loves cycling more than her. At just over a hundred pages, it is a short novel but it is told in such vivid details that the reader can easily imagine the steel drums ringing through the city. If you can find this book, I recommend reading it.
