About this title


From 1950s Trinidad to contemporary America, this collection of short stories explores the tensions between feeling settled and restless that African Caribbean women experience. In these tales, the rich communal village life in Trinidad is seen side by side with the occasional wars between women over their often unemployed men. The struggles of newly immigrated women in the United States to secure green cards and cope with lives as domestic servants force many to invert myths of fairy-tale happiness in their home country. The distinctive Creole dialect and philosophical underpinnings of folk metaphors characterize the sense of irony and enduring connection between new and old lives in these stories.
