Lord Deverills Heir by Catherine Coulter

The first book of its kind,Our Caribbeanis an anthology of lesbian and gay writing from across the Antilles. The author and activist Thomas Glave has gathered outstanding fiction, nonfiction, memoir, and poetry by little-known writers together with selections by internationally celebrated figures such as Joseacute; Alcaacute;ntara Almaacute;nzar, Reinaldo Arenas, Dionne Brand, Michelle Cliff, Audre Lorde, Achy Obejas, and Assotto Saint. The result is an unprecedented literary conversation on gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered experiences throughout the Caribbean and its far-flung diaspora. Many selections were originally published in Spanish, Dutch, or creole languages; some are translated into English here for the first time.The thirty-seven authors hail from the Bahamas, Barbados, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Panama, Puerto Rico, St. Vincent, St. Kitts, Suriname, and Trinidad. Many have lived outside the Caribbean, and their writing depicts histories of voluntary migration as well as exile from repressive governments, communities, and families. Many pieces have a political urgency that reflects their authorsrsquo; work as activists, teachers, community organizers, and performers. Desire commingles with ostracism and alienation throughout: in the evocative portrayals of same-sex love and longing, and in the selections addressing religion, family, race, and class. From the poem ldquo;Saturday Night in San Juan with the Right Sailorsrdquo; to the poignant narrative ldquo;We Came All the Way from Cuba So You Could Dress Like This?rdquo; to an eloquent call for the embrace of difference that appeared in theNassau Daily Tribuneon the eve of an anti-gay protest,Our Caribbeanis a brave and necessary book.Contributors: Joseacute; Alcaacute;ntara Almaacute;nzar, Aldo Alvarez, Reinaldo Arenas, Rane Arroyo, Jesuacute;s J.
