The Coloured Girl in the Ring : A Guyanese Woman Remembers


The Coloured Girl in the Ring: A Guyanese Woman Remembers is a fictional exploration of a young Black woman's coming of age in British Guiana of the late fifties and early sixties. Told against the backdrop of political and racial turbulence, the novel employs a first-person narrative format and proffers a well defined portrait of the main character's recollection of her family life, her oppressive school teachers, her friends' doomed inter-racial romance and her thoughts on race and identity. As the central character matures, she faces painful choices about her future and her need to explore the world around her. Colourful local characters, careful twists, and vivid descriptions of British Guianese life combine to render an original portrayal of the Caribbean woman's transition into adulthood.
