The human origins of Beatrice Porter and other essential ghosts

SKU: 9781788168403

Author: Soraya Palmer


Description:


Zora and Sasha Porter don't know much of their Jamaican father Nigel's and Trinidadian mother Beatrice's pasts. What they do know: the mythic stories of Nigel's flight to America on the string of a purple balloon, the violent histories in Beatrice's book of Anansi Stories, that Nigel had a brother, once, and that Beatrice has a tangle of silvery scars on her back.With their parents' marriage falling apart, the pair navigate their own relationships and secrets - Zora has impure thoughts about a jock, and Sasha drinks cheap beer with a girl who binds her chest.A celebration of the power of stories, this startling debut presents a tale of slippery contradictions and an examination of the limits of resilience.
