Being a Guyanese at the age of 48, I too have been on the treadmill of life, neglecting to take time to understand the roots of my people. Your sources are refreshing and the stories are deeply moving.
The narratives, the names, the places, the stories, the local language, the description of the Indian culture and all the amazing details, evokes memories of my precious thirteen years in Guyana prior to emigrating to New York. Reading Coolie Woman was an emotional journey. The wonderful gift of Coolie Woman should be required reading for all of our Guyanese brothers and sisters.
Great job Gaiutra. I will say selfishly that I am proud to know that you are one of ours. Sujaria would be very proud of you.
We look forward to your next book.
Also, sometimes the verbiage got too lofty, I felt that the ordinary Guyanese reader might struggle a bit.
Otherwise, a great and valuable publication.
