The struggle to keep the 'Royal Palms' alive challenges the strength and integrity of Harold, the Prime Minister. His struggle is reinforced by the guidance of his mentor Joe, the old cabinet maker, Mildred, his wife and Bartlet the Bartender, who help Harold to maintain his attachment to the grassroots, the villagers with whom he has never lost touch. The Royal Palms Are Dying provides an insight into the intrigues of politics in a small island, the machinations of 'white shadows', and the depravity of persons in high office on the island. From a quiet beginning it races through twists and turns to a surprising and violent ending. * WINNER OF THE PRIME MINISTER'S AWARD FOR WORK THAT BEST REFLECTS BARBADIAN CULTURE AND IDENTITY IN A PROVOCATIVE WAY, FRANK COLLYMORE LITERARY ENDOWMENT COMPETITION, 2007, BARBADOS.
