1 Minute Book Review:Beyond Sangre Grande by Cyril Dabydeen

Name of the book: Beyond Sangre Grande

Author: Cyril Dabydeen (Editor)

Publisher: TSAR Publications (September 30, 2011)

What's the book about? "Beyond Sangre Grande "brings together a contemporary selection in English from some of the key writers now living in Canada, the US, and the UK, as well as various countries of the Caribbean."

Why am I reading the book? Beyond Sangre Grande extends the definition of Caribbean beyond a geographically enclosed space and recognizes the contributions of writers in the diaspora.

Quote from the book: Sangre Grande means "big blood," the image of a red river; "blood" as symbol evokes consanguinity and "red," courage.
