A wonderful collection of short stories from the best of Caribbean authors. These esoteric shorts are literary sensuality, textured and rich like fabrics of these opulent islands. Vibrant and colorless as luminous and gloomy. Blustery and calm as a Caribbean breeze. Salmagundi of talent without borders. Every page turned offered a polychromatic of themes shimmering in prose. Suffused with diversity with a provocative shadow.
The Whale House
‘Mark sat in the corner of the room his head in his hands. Laura stretched the lavender baby along the inside of her arms, the perfect feet pressing against her breasts, the heels of her hands supporting the fragile head. Cupping the tender skull with both hands, she kissed the violet fingers, ears and toes, running her fingers along the butterfly eyebrows. To keep her warm she pulled the baby close to her breast, swaddling and rocking her. After three hours, Dr Harnaysingh sedated her so they could pry the baby from her.’
