"This wonderful anthology of fresh voices from the Caribbean...includes writers from Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago. The diverse textures of the stories by 13 established and new authors weave a tapestry of the islands, water, sand, ocean breeze, and rum. Vivid settings serve as backdrops for a dazzling display of personalities."--"Booklist" "The wonder in these stories is that they show Caribbean culture--the people, sounds, food, and music...this book will appeal to readers of Caribbean fiction and beyond."--"Library Journal" "One of my favorite reads of the last few months...sophisticated and engrossing...A big recommendation today for one and all."--Chicago Center for Literature & Photography "["Pepperpot"] leaps headfirst into audacious narrative water, sustaining a diversity in storytelling that's indicative of the panoply of ways to love, sin, and write about it, in these our unpredictable, conjoined societies."--"Caribbean Beat Magazine" "Readers are in for a treat when they open the pages to taste the melange of literary Caribbean cuisine. Spicy and filling!"--"The Gleaner" (Jamaica), "Sizzling Books for Summer Reading" "If you want a masterclass in how to start your stories with a bang, this is the book for you....This is an exciting and heartening book.

It's an ideal summer read."--La Bloga ""Pepperpot" is an eclectic mix of adventure, humor, the spirit world, family relationships, and other subject matters which gives you something to think about."--Ski-wee's Book Corner Featuring a preface by Olive Senior. Includes the 2013 Commonwealth Prize-winning story "The Whale House" by Sharon Millar. Akashic Books and Peepal Tree Press, two of the foremost publishers of Caribbean literature, launch
