GUYANA (*)

Another classic from Heinemann’s Caribbean Writers Series. An indomitable matriach struggles against the confines of a nursing home. Eventually her strong spirit triumphs over the institution that would subdue her, particularly the matron, who shouts at her as if her voice has been “starched and lef tin the sun to harden”.

The home is a place where time stands still, and memories are confused.

Read it if you liked: One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
