Waves against rocks and other stories

By Denise Clarke


Out of Print.

Denise Clarke, twenty-nine when she wrote these stories, was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1966. After spending most of her life in a Jamaican village on the sea coast, Clarke immigrated to Toronto with her mother and two of her sisters when she was eighteen. These funny, moving stories describe Clarke’s growing-up in Jamaica and offer a beautifully detailed picture of her life in the rural Caribbean.

"Country Road"
"Good Friday"
"No Chimney"
"Waves Against Rocks"

These stories are now published in the collection Rub Salt: Stories by Robert Charles Osborne, Peaches D. Ledwidge, Elizabeth Clark and Hien The Chu.
