Product description

Review

"Powell shows us the living within the dying, the foreigner within the native born, the male within the female. Her tales unfold like dreams spread out on a table."
--Danzy Senna, author of Caucasia

"One of the most exciting writers living and writing on the island that is the Caribbean-American hyphen."
--Edwidge Danticat, author of Breath, Eyes, Memory

"With her flawless ear for the poetic vernacular of her native Jamaica and her in-depth understanding of the complexity of island society, Powell continues to affirm the Caribbean's rightful place on the literary map of the world."
--Paule Marshall, author of Praisesong for the Widow

"Me Dying Trial pays homage to mothers, aunts, and grandmothers, who are the heart of a Caribbean household. At times I almost forgot that I was reading a novel, for I was finally hearing and looking into the silences I've wanted to ask my mother about her womanhood in Jamaica and her immigration to New York as a single mother of three. Patricia Powell is one of our greatest Caribbean writers. Me Dying Trial is an inspiration."
--Alexia Arthurs, author of How to Love a Jamaican

"Patricia Powell does something golden in her storytelling--she uses our Jamaican dialect to effectively communicate our pains, sorrows, and triumphs. Me Dying Trial is a powerful work of fiction and an absolutely important contribution to Caribbean literature."
--Nicole Dennis-Benn, best-selling author of PATSY and Here Comes the Sun --This text refers to the paperback edition.
