I started a group on Facebook and named it “Belizeans, West Indians and Creole Language and sayings.” The purpose of this group was to bring people together to share and discuss cultural... More > and language issues related to Belize, the West Indies, and the creole language and experience. Many transplanted Belizeans like myself, a 30+ years resident of Los Angeles and married to a non-Belizean, yearn for conversation with other Belizeans. The internet and in particular, Facebook provides us with the valuable opportunity to socialize and fill this void. This book came about as the result of a conversation on Facebook. A few friends and I were discussing some interesting Belizean creole sayings, many that we hadn’t heard in ages and others that were obscure. The energy and enthusiasm was palpable as we challenged each others’ memories to unlock these cool and interesting sayings from the recesses of our brains.

What a friend we have in Jesus By Mark Jacobs
Paperback: $12.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is probably the first book ever written by a Guyanese about their own travels in the Caribbean (and the diaspora) - and it is refreshing that Mark Jacobs seeks to put this Guyanese visitor gaze... More > on Haitian life. So often people have come to Guyana and written about their time here, that it is a relief to see this reversed gaze (One day we might get best sellers who return to India and to United Kingdom and USA and write those nice kind of patronising travelogues). The first story is 'black woman and child'. Mark writes about black woman in Haiti and in Guyana beating/threatening to beat a child. In 'madame' about love Guyana style with Haitian overtones. The other vignettes are short incisive reflections, moments in time about the experiences in Haiti. About police who beat people and police who give people a lift on the road ; about magic and about reality. Some of the stories are funny, but the laughter is a kind of alternative reaction to anger . Vidyaratha Kissoon< Less
