My Brahmin Days

and other stories


Cyril Dabydeen 

These closely observed stories, with their gritty poetic descriptions and finely ironic twists, confront Dabydeen’s Asian and Caribbean-South American identity with his experience of life in Canada, where he has lived for over three decades.

 “It is the epiphany, the moment of illumination, which comes out of an ordinary experience.” 
—World Literature Today
