Críticas:

"You cannot ignore these stories. They move us to tears, to laughter and to an awareness of a fast changing Trinidad, a microcosm of the world. Barbara Jenkins is a new and startling voice." --Lawrence Scott, author, "Light Falling on Bamboo"

"Barbara Jenkins demonstrates a deep knowledge of humanity and a keen sense of observation. Her style is urbane and accessible. Her prose is controlled and appropriately modulated. Her vision is humanistic." --Funso Aiyejina, author, " The Legend of the Rockhills and Other Stories"

Reseña del editor:

The stories in this collection move from the all-seeing naïveté of a child narrator trying to make sense of the world of adults, through the consciousness of the child-become-mother, to the mature perceptions of the older woman taking stock of her life. Set over a timespan from colonial-era Trinidad to the hazards and alarms of its postcolonial present, these stories have, at their core, the experience of uncomfortable change, but seen with a developing sense of its constancy as part of life, and the need for acceptance. The stories deal with the vulnerabilities and shames of a childhood of poverty; the pain of being let down; glimpses of the secret lives of adults; betrayals in love; the temptations of possessiveness; conflicts between the desire for belonging and independence; and the devastation of loss through illness, dementia, and death. What brings each of these not uncommon situations to fresh and vivid life is the quality of the writing: the shape of the stories, the unerring capturing of the rhythms of the voice and a way of seeing that includes a saving sense of humor and the absurd and also delights in the characters that people these stories.
