 Anton Nimblett

 

Anton Nimblett is a Trinidadian writer based in Brooklyn. SECTIONS OF AN ORANGE is his first collection of eleven short stories.  Nimblett’s stories are beautiful, tragic, yet unexpectedly simple  – and therefore not easily forgotten.

 

 

I didn’t expect to like the first story,’ Visiting Soldiers’, about a  mother being informed, in the standard and traditional way – a knock at the door, two fully dressed army personnel on the doorstep whose very presence informs of the impending bad news –  that her son would not be returning home from the war.  She appears to take it all too calmly; inviting the soldiers in to sit down for a meal (they don’t refuse, not knowing how grief has taken this woman), paying particular attention to the youngest, who could have been her son’s age. Although not standard practice they remain….they leave…; her life and the war move on. But then at what would seem the most unexpected time and place, her anger and grief  explode in a way that is still logical and rational. A very strong start.

 

 

Marjory’s Meal is a gentle love story; a couple nearing the end of their life together and the preparation- the beautiful memories, the loving actions that will bring it to a close.  As a reader we almost feel intrusive; their love is so special, because the Old Man, doesn’t even want his closest family members to know what he has in mind. So the intrusion then feels like an honour, easing our guilt of being party to these last days; to be able to watch and hear this endearing process of love.

 

 

Nimblett’s stories swing between the, New York and Trinidad although as stories go, they are open to being located in the USA and the Caribbean. He leaves enough open endedness of hs main characters to allow the reader to ruminate. I particularly like the way he juggles the exposure of love, lust, and sex, sometimes all three in one story as he incorporates the sensitivity, the steam and the sensual with balance, detail, and rationale.

 

 

Beautifully rendered stories, well collated, love the book cover, too.
