In this groundbreaking anthology, Caribbean women tell their personal stories of loving women. Through interviews and stories they reveal their hidden histories, their secret longings and sexual awakenings. Rosamund Elwin has put together a fine collection that includes well-known writers such as Michelle Cliff, Shani Mootoo and Makeda Silvera and also the voices of women who are not writers. Women who are mothers, poor or illiterate share their experiences with candour. From Trinidad to Toronto, these Caribbean lesbians are linked by their loud clear voices.
As Rosamund Elwin writes in her introduction, Though it can be argued that lesbian experiences have similarities across the globe, the circumstances of our lives, the ways of telling, the language used to tell, the words chosen and the rhythm of those words, make our individual stories different and interesting .
