really liked it

!!! full review https://africanbookaddict.com/2018/04... 4.5 stars!

I really, really enjoyed this anthology. I always love reading anthologies because I get to discover new writers and their short stories give me a taste of their writing styles. I discovered a good number of new Caribbean writers from this anthology, especially as it purposely featured stories by lesser-known Caribbean writers mostly residing on the Islands. I absolutely love that these stories contain local dialect WITHOUT a glossary at the back of the book. If a reader wants to look up a certain word or phrase, they can Google it! It's almost as if the book was written for readers of the Caribbean and not necessarily Western readers - which I'm here for! Not everyday white gaze -_-
