Wasafiri Bundle – Forty Years of Caribbean Literature

Four issues for just £33, exclusively on the Wasafiri website.

Guest edited by Andil Gosine and Nalini Mohabir, Wasafiri 110: Afterlives of Indenture explores the legacy of indentured workers across the Indo-Caribbean, as well as incarceration in African-American communities, and the diasporic experience. With fiction from Ingrid Persuad and Stephen Narain, a conversation between Richard Fung and Ramabai Espinet, life writing from Maria del Pilar Kaladeen, and more, Wasafiri 110 is testament to the legacy that indentureship leaves, and the ways in which affected communities process and reclaim their histories.

Exclusively on the Wasafiri website, we're offering a bundle of four issues for £33: Afterlives of Indenture, Wasafiri 74: Brighter Suns: Sixty Years of Literature from Trinidad, Wasafiri 33, and Wasafiri 16: Focus on the Caribbean. Together, these four issues provide a snapshot of forty years of Caribbean literature, with work from Lisa Allen-Agostini, Jamaica Kincaid, Grace Nichols, Pascale Petit, Monique Roffey, and Earl Lovelace.
