Canada Geese and Apple Chatney: Stories
Fiction. Caribbean Studies. Asian American Studies. In this award-winning collection of stories, Sasenarine Persaud presents us with his unique vision of lives in North America and the Caribbean. The stories are probing, all threaded together by the ancestral India of the protagonist's imagination and a style inspired by ancient storytelling tradition. Here almost inscrutable demotic slang, once penetrated, reinforces Persaud's social commentary and nimbly pits self-ironizing postmodernism against the timeless values of narrative -- The Globe and Mail.
