Short and Sweet: A Collection of Guyanese Stories by Robert J. Fernandes

£7.99Price

A collection of 25 short stories and fables that chronicle a way of life that is unmistakably Guyanese. Well-known Guyanese adventurer Fernandes writes from life experience, providing a fascinating snapshot of the Guyanese way of life. His characters range from lost tribes to porknocker wives; from Leroy the laxative man to Ma Bancroft the gun-toting old lady. The fables are a product of his imagination, and examine the lives of rainbows, raindrops, old dogs, snail hawks and trees from a refreshingly Guyanese perspective.
