What can you expect?
Stories to savour
21 stories, including the award-winning ‘Anjanie’s Wedding’. The stories vary in length and focus on the innumerable aspects of our shared Guyanese culture and history. Some are light-hearted; others are complex. They will make you smile, laugh out loud, think, and wipe away a tear or two. Your heart will go out to the ladies of Kiskadee Village who come in all shapes, sizes and temperaments, and the badderashun lil bais will delight you with their escapades as they raid fruit trees, catch crabs, steal cane, test for Ole Higue and more.
Recipes to devour
16 recipes for food that the people of Kiskadee Village cook, including plait bread, roti, salara and saltfish chokha. You will smell the food and your mouth will water as you read through the recipes. As you may know, I am also the author of 5 food books. I have written clear, easy-to-follow recipes with both metric and Imperial weights and measures. In addition, the ladies are giving you some of their own personal tips to help you along.
Illustrations to delight you
The book is illustrated with photographs of my ceramic figurines – my ladies – and a few glimpses into my childhood photo album, as well as beautiful hand-drawn colour pictures that bring Kiskadee Village and its people to life.
Glossary to enlighten you
Guyanese, but you didn’t grow up in the countryside? Non-Guyanese, but you love the culture? No problem! The book is written in standard English, with some Creolese dialogue where appropriate. There is an extensive glossary that will explain the Creolese and Hindi words used in the stories, as well as an explanation of how Creolese is used.
