Summary (From the publisher):

From the author of the GILLER AWARD - winning novel "The Polished Hoe" comes a new collection of 20 of his best short stories. "Choosing His Coffin" is a selection of Austin Clarke's finest work from more than 40 years of storytelling, drawing on his Caribbean roots and his years in Canada. These stories range in theme from growing up in West Indian society and what it means to be black in both the United States and Canada to surviving as an immigrant in a predominantly Anglo-Saxon culture. Clarke has become one of the most respected authors in North America and is one of Canada's national literary treasures. He is a master of fictional invention.
