About this title


This novel is a sequel to The Coloured Girl in the Ring. Set mainly in nineteen-eighties Brooklyn, New York, Calabash Parkway explores the lives of 'Gatha, Evadne, Gwennie and Drupattie, Guyanese women who migrate to North America, finding love and tragedy. 'Gatha is an "undocumented' immigrant in Brooklyn, one who searches for a green card only to stumble on passion with a younger man. Evadne struggles to wrest happiness from the jaws of despair, and Gwennie migrates to Toronto, burdened with her father's terrible secret. The interracial relationship between Steven Osbourne and Drupattie ultimately yields results that portend hope for Guyanese attitudes on race. Colorful characters, folk wisdom, and the Creolese dialect interspersed with Standard English all add humor and interest to this vivid portryal of Guyanese immigrant life in the metropole.
