Abstract: This thesis is a creative work of fiction, which chronicles the life of an orphan named John. Born on a small Caribbean island, John’s life is riddled with unpredictable forces that threaten to tear him limb from limb. Meek and devilishly intuitive, he finds himself creating from the rubble of his neighbourhood, after an early-life father figure awakened his nascent talent for design and engineering. After the fire, Miss Norma—long-time neighbour and village elder, takes John in. Her life-long loyalty to John’s biological father becomes a rift in John’s ongoing life as he faces recurring internal and external battles over his work, his status as an orphan and about his place in a rapidly changing world.
