Riveting stories revealing deep insights of the character and culture of Caribbean people by a well known Barbadian author. It So Happen 3 – Callender’s Classics - brings together the stories written in Standard English. The conversations of the characters are, however, authentic and retain the ‘nature language’ - the dialect or Barbadian vernacular. "He uses the vernacular as one should apply seasoning to flying fish … discretely to bring out taste … and not inordinately to spoil the enjoyment of the diner…”, says one reviewer. These stories will delight lovers of 'tall tales', students of English Literature and teachers of English as a second or foreign language. TIMOTHY CALLENDER became a household name in 70’s and 80’s when his stories were regularly read on radio by the late cultural icons of Barbados, Sir Frank Collymore and Alfred Pragnell. But his name was also a familiar name in schools as his stories were part of many literature texts used in the study of English. Not only did publishers such as Longman, Nelson Caribbean and Heinemann make a place for him in their anthologies, there were also German translations in their storybooks as well. Throughout the Commonwealth, his stories are well known and one of them, An Honest Thief, was chosen as the example for study at the Commonwealth Short Story Writers Conference in England in the 80’s. His story, An Assault on Santa Claus, was selected for inclusion in The Oxford Book of Christmas Stories.
