Run Big ‘Fraid…and other village stories, by Easton Lee, are stories about real people as they lived their lives in a remote Jamaican setting. Some are sad and may perhaps evoke a tear, others amusing, making you laugh. One or two little risqué, still others make you think.
Many have much to teach us about ourselves and our people in those times of our grand and great grandparents, how they survived at a time when there were none of the modern amenities and convenience we now take for granted.
You may learn something of our ancestral lore and ancient wisdom, much of which we have lost, or discarded, or forgotten in our embracing of alien cultures. These are certainly glimpses of what life was like for our people not so long ago. A BalaPress book.USD $19.97
Lest We Find Gold by Melanie Schwapp, is a powerful and compelling masterpiece of fine literature. The rhythmic story weaves between the past and present of Millicent ‘Milly’ Pratt’s life; through the ‘golden’ layers we uncover the secret issues of insecurity, domestic abuse, social prejudice and the internal struggle between fear and acceptance.
We look beneath the ‘caftan’ that cloaks Milly in self-deception, confusion and pain, and we are left gasping as she strips herself to release the freedom of ‘naked finery’. A BalaPress book.USD $24.97USD $24.97
