Julie Mango

These nine short stories explore the often transient Caribbean experience, both from the perspective of those who have left the islands and returned and those who are dealing with the repercussions of their decisions not to leave. The characters speak with a self-conscious honesty about their choices and peer in from the outer edges of Caribbean society to discuss everything from the homophobic element of the Rastafarian movement to their personal desires to escape restrictive Caribbean definitions of their own personas. All of the stories share a common plea for tolerance.
