This collection of short stories by Belizean women writers reflects the memories, dreams and nightmares of women. From accounts of abuse and stories of strength to memories of history, this collection tells untold tales of women?s lives in Belize.
The stories in this second volume of Memories, Dreams and Nightmares are not only the voices of women, they are the voices of writers demanding to be heard, claiming a place in history, shaping through their vision the landscape of our Belizean/ Caribbean/ Central Americanness.
This collection of four short stories written in Spanish integrates folklore and historical events in the early days of Belize's western border settlement of "Old Bank" or Benque Viejo as the settlers called it. Each story describes an experience with the supernatural presented in a cultural context within a changing society.
This collection contains a remarkable cross-section of Belizean life. The works range from the humorous to the tragic, are based on myth and in real life, and have been created by some of the country's best known writers, artists and performers.
This collection of short stories was written by seven different authors over a forty year period. The stories are as varied as Belizeans themselves, from sweet remembrances of the past to political cynicism and slices of life from World War II to the 1970s
