Doreen Oliver

Guided by an irrepressible crew of old-school matriarchs, she does everything possible to “fix” her son — and starts to unravel when she realizes she can’t. A funny yet honest look at how we try to change the people that matter most to us, and how we cope when we realize we can’t.

After reveling in an idyllic childhood in Antigua, Iyaba is rudely awakened when, as an eleven year-old, his family moves to the United States—where he believes the streets are paved with gold. Instead, what he meets is a world of betrayal and racism. Yet, through poetry, storytelling, song and the portrait he paints as he tells his tale, Iyaba shares his joy in the journey of finding his voice for change.
