If you've ever wondered who would replace legends like V.S. Naipaul wonder no more, Lyndon Baptiste, a rising star was born. Not to be out done by his book Boy Days, Lyndon lyrics us with raucous hilarious prose in Ooh my testicles.
That the story is about a personal dilemma surrounding his health, told in graphic comical detail gives you a glimpse into the unpretensive character that is Lyndon Baptiste. The health care system in Trinidad and Tobago portrayed accurately, circumstances and attitudes so surreal makes reading about it on paper convey a sense that we're a nation of schizophrenics.
You've got to love an author who willingly strips naked for a group of medical interns and gyrates his "ill" willy at them, and has the gumption to write about it as well! Without a doubt Lyndon Baptiste is an author who has a lot of balls, pun most definitely intended! LMAO!!! hahahahaha
In 2007 I got testicular torsion. In Trinidad and Tobago, the health industry lifts eyebrows on a daily basis, and here I was, a twenty-five-year-old man, spinning wildly through various hospital corridors, trying desperately to save my manhood. Don't let the name of the book distract you. It isn't smutty, it's simply an account, humourous, painful and true, with honest commentary on the state of private and public healthcare in an emerging economy.
