Memoirs of An Illegal Alien
I just started reading what must be a one-of-a-kind account of a Jamaican who migrated to the US back in what looks like the 1980's.
It's called Memoirs of an Illegal Alien and I have just reached the part where the author, a Campion College graduate and prior resident of Forest Hill Gardens with gardener, helper and satellite dish has gotten his first job cleaning toilets. This after lying to immigration in Miami about how long he intended to stay.
It makes very good reading, and even though we may not all have gone through the exact same experiences, every Caribbean immigrant to the US or Canada can relate to some degree to his personal story. There are a full 21 installments to date, and they are in chronological order, starting from the bottom.
