Tongues On Fire : Caribbean Lesbian Lives and Stories

£14.99

Product description

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. In 'Tongues on Fire', Caribbean lesbians speak zami desire honestly and eloquently, loudly and clearly. Narrating their life stories, they claim what has never been acknowledged -- lesbian history and continuity in the Caribbean. And diasporic writers collectively honour that history and continuity in fiction sweet with intimacy, sensuality, and memory. Like the lives and stories of Caribbean lesbians, 'Tongues on Fire' is unique.
