Beyond the Limbo Silence by Elizabeth Nunez
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In the tradition of novelists Alice Walker, Jamaica Kincaid, and Tsitsi Dangarembga, Elizabeth Nunez weaves a personal story into the broader tapestry of political history. Twenty-year-old Sara Edgehill has left her native Trinidad in 1963 to attend college in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, where she joins two other girls -- Courtney from St. Lucia and Angela from British Guyana -- in the task of integrating the all-white school. For Sara, coming from a world in which she is connected to a vibrant community and culture, this cold, alien place in which she is neither loved nor understood is profoundly shocking and disorienting.She longs to return to Trinidad, but knows she must finish college. Slowly, Sara finds support in her friendship with Courtney, who covertly practices voodoo rituals, and in a blossoming relationship with Sam, an African-American who draws her into the turbulent civil rights movement.Set against vivid historical events and written with poignancy and insight, Beyond the Limbo Silence will surely take its place among the classics of its genre.
