Description

From the moment he learns of his mother's death in Guyana, Hemchand Gossai begins the long journey home to his birthplace, thousands of miles to a now faraway land. Beyond the moment of sorrow and the grief that envelops him, the author paints a poignant and moving portrait of a life interrupted many times over. Filled with joy and pain, humor and sadness, this story will resonate with anyone who has struggled with self identity and transformation, and the wonder, shock, and comedy of entering a new cultural world. This is a story of choice and consequences, race and religion, childhood and fatherhood. River Crossings is a journey of fulfilling final promises of a son to a mother, promises that must be kept, promises with their own challenges. Hemchand Gossai is Director of Religious Studies at Georgia Southern University. He is also the author of Social Critique by Israel's Eighth-Century Prophets: Justice and Righteousness in Context. Born in Guyana as a third-generation East Indian, he has lived and studied in the United States and the United Kingdom, where he received his PhD.
