This novel explores the connections between personal and political integrity and reflects sensitively on the position of women in Guyanese society. Sandra Yansen must leave behind the close ties of family and village when she takes a job as a reporter in Georgetown. After establishing a tenuous footing in the city, Sandra is summoned home, where she encounters the enduring matriarchy of her mother’s friends. Their values sustain Sandra in her search for independence.

Review:

'This is not a novel to be taken at face value for its joy lies in the fact that it works on so many different levels... the subtleties and tensions of life are not far from the surface as the author questions the notions of political as well as individual dependence and independence.' -- Anne Jordan, Spare Rib
