Book Description

Puss Food and Other Jamaican Stories is an eclectic and charming collection of fictional short tales that smartly and vividly highlight and examine the traditions, diligence, resourcefulness and idiosyncrasies of Jamaicans – in both rural and urban settings.

Penned with unflinching candour by prize-winning Jamaican author Ditta Sylvester, the stories touch on a range of themes and issues that matter deeply to Jamaicans but are laced with universal appeal.

Whether tackling the joy and pain of child rearing, the taboo practice of obeah, family relationships, difficult struggles and sweet victories, these stories are delightful reads packed with wit, humour and emotional generosity. This debut collection from Sylvester also includes her outstanding pieces “Freda’s Harvest” and “Sugar Foster,” which copped gold and silver medals respectively in the 2010 Jamaica Creative Writing Competition.

Sure to entertain and inspire readers within and outside the Diaspora, Puss Food and Other Jamaican Stories is a worthy new addition to the canon of indigenous Jamaican writing.
