Caribbean Review of Books relaunched

After a gap in publication of almost a year, The Caribbean Review of Books has been relaunched online with a new website, which we think is both more attractive and easier to browse:

From May 2004 to May 2009, the CRB published twenty-one quarterly print issues, offering readers lively coverage of Caribbean books, writing, and culture via reviews, essays, and interviews, plus original poems and fiction, and artists' portfolios.

In the new online incarnation, the CRB will continue to publish an intelligent, insightful blend of literary and cultural coverage, and to draw on the knowledge and talent of a distinguished corps of contributors. And the shift from paper to pixels will allow us to be more flexible and timely. New reviews, essays, and other material will appear online weekly, usually on Mondays, before being collected into six bimonthly issues each year.

The first pieces from our May 2010 issue are already online. This week you can read reviews of recent books of poems and short stories, and of a study of "the Caribbean postmodern novel as museum"; plus the first installment of an essay about travelling to India by a young Trinidadian writer. The contents page for this new issue is here:

Please drop by, read, browse the online archive--and help spread the word about the relaunch. Feel free to forward thispost, link to the new CRB site on Facebook, tweet it, blog it--and share your comments and criticisms with them at the following address:
