When the Bottom Falls Out and Other Stories
H Nigel Thomas
The past sits uneasily on the characters of these stories, whether on their nativeIsabella Island or in Montreal, where some of them now live. Life is ultimately lived

according to the choices that were made, and retribution does not always go where

it belongs. Thus, Robertson, taking action against his wife and her lover, creates a

situation he’s not quite prepared for. The wealthy and proper Higginsons have lived

a lie that eventually must come out. Jen and Edwin are passionately in love, but can

they shake off the shadow that hangs over their lives? In his quiet and subtle way,

Thomas continues to bring alive a Caribbean island, giving depth and complexity to

its characters.

Praise for H Nigel Thomas’s Lives: Whole and Otherwise:

“In Thomas’ hands the interior monologue becomes a powerful tool for

voicing character and experience.  Time and again he demonstrates his

skill at reproducing the speech patterns of characters with Caribbean

origins to mesmerizing effect. . . . the stories contained in Lives Whole

 and Otherwise are all about shaking one frame or another. H. Nigel

 Thomas gives voice to a hard social reality that refuses the glib formulas

 of traditional narrative form.”
