"The Flour Convoy captures the human
consequences of political changes in post-colonial Guyana from the unique
perspective of a West Point graduate, who served as an officer in the Guyana
Defense Force... A tightly woven plot with an authenticity of place and
Prakash Gossai, Bhuvaneshwar Mandir.
"The Flour Convoy follows in the grand
tradition of Chinua Achebe's Anthills in the Savannah and V.S. Naipaul's
A Bend in the River, but moves beyond those important works with an
insider's view of the military's role in buttressing the authoritarian regime it
chronicles... An informative and compelling read."

The Ivory Tower, published by University Press
of the South.
"A writer of great creativity and wit,
Chaitram Singh brings an intellectual's insight to bear on the light and dark
sides of humanity in a situation that speaks of universal struggles, tragedies,
and triumphs... A compelling story that keeps the reader turning pages."
Bruce Conn, author of The Curse of Durgan's
''A view of authoritarianism from very close
range... The Flour Convoy makes the reader an eyewitness to the
corruptive forces so common in post-colonial regimes... A wonderfully crafted
plot, presented with the cripness the title convoys."
