If you thought the first Roving with Lalah was funny, you will love Roving with Lalah: More Slices of Everyday Jamaican Life. Following on the continuing success of the weekly Gleaner newspaper column by the same name, Roving Reporter Robert Lalah continues his journey around Jamaica revelling in the sights, sounds, scenery and people of this beautiful Caribbean island. From 'A Chat with Mama Marley' to 'Drama in the Chinese Restaurant' and 'The Not so Comfy Street Dance', Lalah's narrative charm in each of the stories imparts Jamaican facts and fiction, myths and legends, and keeps readers coming back for more. Lalah shares an authentic feel for the island as only a Jamaican could. Uproariously witty and near riotous in his descriptions of some notable and some not so well known places in Jamaica, Roving with Lalah will leave you longing for a visit to the enigmatic island that was home to Bob and still is to Bolt. About the Author Robert Lalah is Arts and Entertainment Editor of the Sunday Gleaner. He continues to rove around Jamaica and write his weekly column 'Roving with Lalah' for The Gleaner.
