9780948833960: Chopstix in Mauby

Djuna is not prepared to accept her role in a society which 'limited life to a too sweet, thick, encompassing, unforgiving mauby bitter sweet'. She becomes a devotee in the Orisha chappelles, her feeling that she possesses special capacities confirmed when the priestess tells her, 'You could be whole... since you have all the energies'. Djuna must now discipline her life to the difficult task of controlling the divine forces within her which manifest in possession and trance, and fulfilling her gifts as a healer of broken spirits.

From the Publisher:

Chopstix in Mauby is a revolutionary, groundbreaking work of magical realism. It reinterprets the history of African Caribbean struggle and cultural survival through profoundly womanist and ecological concerns. Above all, it is about the 'birth of woman time' as it traces Djuna's journey towards self-realisation and choice.
