On Heroes, Lizards and Passion

Zoila Ellis
CATEGORIES: Sense of Culture

From A Year of Reading the World: “The seven short stories in On Heroes Lizards and Passions paint a powerful and varied picture of life in Belize and the Belizean diaspora. Centering on moments when characters find release from fears, prejudices, assumptions, hopes, and dreams, they reveal the way that, wittingly or unwittingly, we can change the course of one another’s lives. There is the lapsed priest who finds a way to make peace with his inadequacies through a neighbor’s chance comment, the pregnant teenager set free by her grandmother’s compassion, and the lizard community thrown into confusion by the arrival of humans.”

(Recommended by Ann Morgan, author and TED speaker)
