Johnson Beharry was born in 1979 in Grenada as one of eight children, living in a two-bedroom hut, surviving on meagre meals of beans and rice and walking barefoot, three miles to school.

I am a Grenadian like Beharry however we don't all speak like that. Trying to employ a creole accent made the book unbearable to listen. I have opted to purchase the hard back.
