In Praise of Island Women and Other Stories by Brenda Flanagan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Celebrating women's capacity to endure life's hardships with resilience, stoicism, and humor, this brilliant collection of short stories, meditations, and prose poems paints a vivid picture of life in the Caribbean. Touching on women of many ages and ethnicities, from towns and from the countryside, and in transition--escaping from the hard circumstances of island life and in search of material security in the United States--these engrossing stories demonstrate how even within Trinidad's satirical and sometimes cynical culture, women are capable of developing a sense of self and community.
