Jun 16, 2016 rated it it was amazing
In the introduction to The Haunted Tropics: Caribbean Ghost Stories, editor Martin Munro says “every island of the Caribbean is the site of a deep haunting.” The anthology proves this point by offering a variety of stories which are at turns disturbing, creepy and sad. A languid feeling pervades the book, so don't read in one sitting.

I believe its a great book with multiple short stories that highlight some of the differences in some Caribbean countries.

“You inhaled to the rhythm of her thick sighs as she scrutinized her form in the full-length bedroom mirror, her newly sewn skirt showing, she said, too much hip, too much leg. She yanked it off, snipping open the seams, laying it out across the dining table like a freshly gutted fish, where it eventually disappeared from view beneath sheaths of brown paper patterns, paisley skirts whose hems needed letting out, floral dresses whose cleavages needed closing in, and an assortment of garments whose long and short zippers would go neither up nor down, jammed from the humidity and the salt of August days.” 1 likes
