Sam Selvon’s Moses Ascending depicts West Indian Immigration in England.

Moses, a Trinidadian who has been in England for some years now represents immigrants who come from all corners of the world to seek a better life. Like many immigrants he is hard-working.

Sharply witty, incessantly ironic, infectiously fast-moving. A British comedy of sex and race in the 70s, from the point of view of Moses, a black landlord hoping to live large and instead encountering illegal immigrants, Black Power radicals living in his basement, and infidelity scandals involving his servant Bob.
